    And if an employee quits a job without notice and without sufficient cause, that employee should be forced to compensate his employer for damages. Seems fair.

    Sure. Why not? I'd love to be able to ban people from thinking of paedophilia, torture, abuse. Wouldn't you?

    Or does your absurd political slant mean you'd rather the world suffer so you can be 'free'?

    You make a good point. I'll amend my position. So long as it is not in violation of the law. However, if it were not against the law and that were the reason then I'd be okay with it. Why? Because it's my company. I'm not saying this would make me a good employer, I'd be a complete asshole for firing someone for that. But still, my company means my risk. There would certainly be consequences. A smart business owner wouldn't get in that position to begin with.

    Just remember, the same people that claim businesses only care about profit are the same people that claim they will forgo profit for racist or sexist reasons. These people are not to taken seriously.

    How childish.

    Anyway, it doesn't matter -- this is all beside the fact.

    You must agree that it can't be legal to fire people for being black, or gay, or Muslim, right?

    I think an employer should have to tell you why they terminate you and it should be truthful, as best as can be determined. If they fire you for being unpleasant to be around, then that is valid to me.

    How does your absurd political slant propose to "ban" people from thinking certain things?
