An employee can be fired for this reason, any reason or no reason at all. The fact is that most work relationships at "at will" and as such a company can set the terms and conditions of the workplace much as it sees fit. This is true absent an employment contract, union agreemnt or company policy to the contrary. Also, their treatment must not have been due to any form of actionable discrimination.
