1. Under what circumstances, if any, is it ethically permissible for an employer to punish an employee for behavior outside of work?


What ethical principles or ideals do you think a company should consider when making decisions about layoffs?

The only time I feel that it would be ethically permissible for an employer to punish an employee for behavior outside of work is if that behavior damages the company's reputation or otherwise hurts the company in some way.

In the United States, we  have many freedoms granted to us, including many lifestyle and behavior choices. These should be recognized by companies, but it is within the company's rights to punish or terminate an employee if they are hurting the company in some way.
