You can be fired for this, any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. The fact is that most employment is "at will". This means that a company can set the conditions of the workplace much as it sees fit, absent some form of legally actionable discrimination. Therefore, unless your temination under the circumstances would violate the terms of an employment contract or union agreement, it would be legal.
