Can I fire a worker whose personal beliefs clash with mine?
2. Can I fire a worker whose personal beliefs clash with mine?
You may not fire a worker because of his or her religious or political beliefs. Federal and state laws protect workers from this type of discrimination. However, if a worker brings those beliefs into the workplace by, for example, proselytizing to coworkers despite their requests to stop or arguing over politics during work time, you may put a stop to this.
