Free Speech & Employment

I did a talk just recently and the topic of free speech came up from one employee. He was proud of the fact that he bashes his employer all the time. Some people felt this is a free speech issue. I would agree that you have free speech but remember, at least here is Ohio, employment is at will by employer and employee as well. So you have free speech, and your employer is free to fire you for expressing your views. No problem in my book. Some employees think that free speech means no consequences for expressing their views.

What do you think? Please post comments on this topic.
