Insurrection at the U.S. Capitol

Individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6 are now facing consequences. While criminal and civil culpability may depend on individual circumstances, we have already seen several rioters—including attorneys from Texas and Georgia—lose their jobs. As we saw after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville (2017) and other controversial, high-profile, and off-hours employee activity, there is no law precluding private employers from such employment action.
