    The free speech concept was only meant to apply to governmental action. Your employer can fire you at any time for (almost) any reason.

    I don't know about other states but here in Texas your employer don't need a reason to fire you.

    Yeah, I qualified it bc there are certain exceptions (ie racial or gender discrimination if you can prove it)

    what about free speech guys?

    People are free to say what they want.
    Others are free to respond.
    Their employers are free to fire them, for their free speech.

    Not if its benign

    If I say I'm a pats fan you can't fire me as my employer for that

    Actually they can. Let's say you work for the Jets organization, they could fire you for a FB post celebrating a Pats win over the Jets...if they wanted to.

    I didn't think of those kinds of instances

    If I'm just a salesman at a store or an insurance broker or something irrelevant statements about personal preferences are not solid grounds for termination though

    First Amendment rights only restrict the government, so these private corps can fire you for most reasons except discrimination on race, gender, sexual orientation etc.

    No

    Yes, based on discrimination but not on free speech.

    Yea but an employer doesn't need "solid grounds" to fire. Like dude said a min ago, do some research on 'at-will employment.'

    At-will employment is a term used in U.S. labor law for contractual relationships in which an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason (that is, without having to establish "just cause" for termination), and without warning.

    It refers to specific contracts

    Normally they need just cause

    There is a just cause requirement in many places

    Nope. 99% of the jobs out there at at will. Contract workers are actually the exception. The "contract" term in your post is general term because all employees technically are under contract whether expressed or implicit.
