    One thing about church policies that I toatally understand the moral issues of, but don’t agree with the legal aspects of is the church owning you off the clock.
    Example: If I work at Wal-mart, but like to shop at Target, they can’t fire me as long as I do it off the clock. If I work for Marlboro, but promote an anti-smoking organization they can’t fire me as long as it’s on my own time. Why? Because it’s on my own time and as long as what I do on my own time doesn’t affect me at work (getting drunk off the clock, but still being drunk when I clock in affects me – where sobering up first doesn’t)
    Churches are different. They will fire you for not following church policy or even doing something equivalent to working at Wal-Mart, but shopping Target on and off the clock, which legally raises the question, “Are you ever off the clock?” Salaried employees – okay there may be some reasoning there, but hourly employees – that adds up to a lot of OT pay.
    I’d be interested to find out what the law says about churches governing action of non-salaried / non-clergy employees off the clock.

    Answered my own questions. This link is pretty comprehensive on the subject.

    If it affects job performance or company image then it’s easy to fire. If “at will” employment then no problem either, unless for a protected reason.
