    Anyone ever been fired for OCing when not at work?

    In some states, you can be fired for just about anything, including personal activities you do on the weekend - whether illegal or not. Do you know of anyone who was fired because they OC'ed while on their own personal time?

    At-will employment. See the numerous exceptions.

    At-will employment - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    At-will employment is a term used in US labor law for contractual relationships where an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason, or "just cause", and without warning. When an employee is acknowledged as being hired "at will", courts deny the employee any claim for loss resulting from the dismissal. The rule is justified by its proponents on the basis that an employee may be similarly entitled to leave his or her job without reason or warning. In contrast, the practice is seen as unjust by those who view the employment relationship as characterised by inequality of bargaining power.

    Following condemnations by Hillary Clinton, everyone in the world is now trying to define exactly what the Alt-Right is. Most of them are getting it wrong.

    And yet SCOTUS has imposed some reasonable regulation on the notion of at-will employment.

    Your question is difficult to answer since termination of at-will employment does not require a statement of reasons. Case law from termination based on other issues (age, family composition, sexual orientation seem to be the current hot buttons) might help you learn how to build a case of being terminated for OCing outside of work as opposed to being too chipper in the mornings.

    QUESTION: What prompts this line of inquiry?

    in front of my computer, WI
    Even though WI prohibits employment discrimination based on "use or nonuse of legal products off company time & property", as well as arrest record, I'm positive I have lost one position because of my 2A advocacy, suspect at least two others, and am pretty sure that my search for employment is being torpedoed because of it.

    I know I had extra scrutiny while in school, extra background checks and so forth.

    And my son's adopters have refused to let us (my son & I) see each other for several years now, thanks to the first wrongful arrest & their overall attitude toward self-defense. They have guns, they've taught my son to shoot, she's been attacked on their front porch, but they're against self-defense.
