Florida Law Firm Fires Workers For Wearing Orange Shirts

At the Elizabeth R. Wellborn law firm in Florida, fourteen employees were called into a conference room and asked if they were all wearing orange shirts as some kind of protest. They said no. And then they were all fired.

Now here’s the ironic part: Florida is an “at will” state. You can be fired for any reason as long as the reason is not specifically prohibited. If the employees had said that they were protesting working conditions at the firm, they might have been protected by federal law.
