    I know Kroger will most likely fire this employee but I have already shown my support for him by handing the GM of the store a letter stating that I will no longer shop there if the employee is fired.

    I didn't hear anywhere in the TV report that the employee was fired.

    He hasn't been fired at this time. And as of today the Marion County DA has determined he will face no charges for the justified shooting.

    For those who haven't heard. Apparently Kroger is not going to fire Levi.

    That's why I wish our laws were changed in a way that would protect companies from liabilities like that. If that happened, we'd see a lot more company rulebooks saying things like "no guns allowed without state issued license." or something to that effect.
    That would still do nothing for an employee that want to bring a gun to work. The company would still ban it because they would be worried of a pissed off worker popping shots off at people if he/she gets fired. What we need is the law to state that one can bring a gun into work without risk of being fired but at the same time, the company isn't held for any wrongful death suits.

    It doesn't actually work that way. The doctrine of Respondeat superior ("let the master answer") holds an employer liable for the actions of their employee. If a simple line in a rulebook could remove this liability, every employee handbook would have a rule that says "never do anything that creates a civil liability".

    I did the same--we all should.

    Elijah "Levi" Elliott chooses to resign his position at Kroger of his own volition in order "to get a fresh start". His prospects are probably good. We can keep Krogering since the store never intended to fire Levi.
