In January this year, Australians watched on, as Americans stormed the U.S. Capitol. As a result of the recent riots in Washington, certain employers have gone on to dismiss their employees for attending and being involved.  Its worth noting the USA does not have the unfair dismissal laws that we have here, but do have discrimination laws. The questions that needs to be asked are whether this is fair? And whether you are protected from dismissal in Australia for such a reason? Are Employers casting a moral view / decision versus a soundly based legal decision? Will this happen here?
