Employees are not fully protected by the First Amendment

Private employment is at will. The most productive or most loyal worker is subject to termination at any time. Employers are not required to show cause or pay severance. The only exception is getting fired for a discriminatory reason that violates state or federal law.

News from the Courts: Discrimination Complaint Reinstated
