I would agree with your sentiments in the general case, but in one of the cases, the engineer was not meeting expectations:

Quote:
Bell said Canopy discovered the first engineer was secretly working a second full-time job after 2 1/2 months of poor performance, which had been flagged by the engineer's teammates.


In the other, the new hire was told before hiring that the company does not allow dual full-time jobs, and he/she lied about it.

Quote:
The second engineer showed similar red flags before they even started the position, Bell said, and HR told the person directly that the company was not OK with dual full-time employment. An employment-verification request soon confirmed HR's hunch was correct, despite the engineer's initial denial.


Firing was justified in both cases, but for different reasons.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
