    Can the company fire you for having a Confederate battle flag on your vehicle in the parking lot?

    Does the union come into play or not?

    Why I want to fly it is not the topic here.

    You didn't get fired after your accident on the sub-street?







    Oh, you might not get fired, but there is a good chance you wil get the crap beaten out of you.

    Obviously I can't ask a simple question. Not one of these replies has been useful.

    They can not fire you for having that flag on your car, they can however tell you not to park it on their property. If you continue to park in their lot, then I'm sure they could fire you if they chose. There is no free speech at work.

    Again. Not helpful. And what are your sources? You said "No" without any explanation. Please just don't reply if you can't be productive.

    No, they can't fire you for the flag, but they can ask you to park elsewhere.

    Are you driving the General Lee?
    I really don't think they go out in the parking lot looking for tasteless bumper stickers...

    I'm sure they don't. But there are other workers in the parking lot. One might feel "offended" and report it. Then they will go in the parking lot.

    I am not driving the General Lee.
