Group 4: Firing Employees Based on Conduct Outside of Work

Instructions: Discuss your views, opinions, and supporting arguments on the issue of firing employees based on their conduct outside of work. Support your comments with your experiences, values and supporting arguments from readings and research. Post a minumum of three messages each week to your discussion (from Tuesday to following Tuesday), and try to reply to other's comments and questions.
