    Getting Fired off the clock

    What is the name of your state? Florida.
    Just wondering if a person can get fired if he or she is "off the clock".

    So you're saying a person can get fired when NOT on company time???? Your boss can just call you at home and say "hey Joe,,,just called to say,You're fired".

    You are starting to seem trollish with your questions, disneykid52. If you have a real situation you want advice about, please describe it for us.

    Now you're adding features that were not in your original post, but yes, for doing nothing wrong. Florida, like every other state in the US except Montana, and even including Montana in some circumstances, is an at-will state. You can quit at any time and for any reason, and you can be fired at any time and for any reason not explicitly prohibited by law. Including no reason at all.

    No, that's not (necessarily) true. Did you have a real question...or are you just here to feed tidbits and try to look better?
