PERSONAL FREEDOM

At the end of a work day when an employee is no longer on company time, does the boss still have control over that individual?
If, for instance, away from work the individual smokes cigarettes and risks injury to both their health and their boss's insurance premiums, should BossMan be able to terminate employment?
Most of us would answer Hell No! They get our time and our abilities while we're on the clock and when we leave our lawful actions are not subject to company authority.
What if those off-clock actions are distasteful to our Liberal minds? Does our committment to personal freedoms weaken when, say, an off-duty policeman is active in a legal organization we don't like?
