    Florida law firm fires 14 employees for wearing orange shirts on payday

    All employees found wearing orange shirts on payday were fired without explanation according to absolute discretion afforded to employers in Florida. As explained to the media by Eric K. Gabrielle, a labor and employment lawyer, Florida law states that without a specific contract to the contrary, an employer can fire a worker “for a good reason, for a bad reason or even the wrong reason, as long as it’s not an unlawful reason.”
    ccording to the workers, wearing orange shirts to psyche out on payday had become a growing fashion within the company starting with four workers wearing orange shirts on happy hour, and this Friday it ended up with fourteen employees adopting the fashion to celebrate happy hour as a group.

    Employers asked the employees to a meeting room, asked them whether it was some sort of protest, to which all replied in the negative, and then the firm fired all employees found wearing an orange shirt.

    Workers were stunned as Lou Erik, a paralegal wearing an orange shirt commented, “There is no office policy against wearing orange shirts. We had no warning. We got no severance, no package, no nothing … I feel so violated.” But that is fully legal in Florida.

    I'm sure there's more to the story than what is being represented.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Winston Churchill
