Total overreaction by the front office instituting once again, draconian zero tolerance policies.

Taking out your frustrations for your sorry season on security guards after taking it out on young players is a sad and pathetic act by this team.

Do you always believe what you read?

You have to read between the lines and go through the BS and figure out stuff for yourselves. You have to learn how to sniff out BS garbage like "its company policy."

They were fired because the team was still angry over the loss and they see their own security guards taking pics with the guy who just kicked their asses and they got mad, took it out on lowly security guards and fired them.

Learn how to sniff out company line BS.

This is one of them.

SAD, VINDICTIVE, PATHETIC MOVE BY THIS FRANCHISE.
Let me read between the lines. YOU are mad at the Texans and would jump on their case for any reason, good or bad.

Isn't this the more likely scenario?

Fired on the spot? No. Could they have a hand going forward or on potential reinstatement? Yes.
Having an employee using their security clearance to bug the athletes does negatively affect the security agency since the Texans would find it intolerable unless they pay a hefty premium for the privilege. They have autograph sessions for those things at the proper time.

You'd have to show that someone "bugged" somebody.

You'd also need to show how this has led to the company losing business elsewhere / previously.

You'd also need to show that no other entities approached said athlete for pictures in the same setting.

You'd still be liable for claims if your existing policy suffered selective enforcement, when it regarded an off-duty employee, especially an hourly one.

"At will" is great, until you open your big mouth and say WHY the employee was let go.

I take it that you did not bother to read the entire thread before replying to my initial post? You would have clearly seen my thought process come to the realization about company policy and ultimately having no problem with it.

Are you in labor law? You seem to be pretty sure of yourself but I'm not sure I agree with your opinion

Ok actually contributing to the topic at hand. As most have conferred, if it's company policy then there is no news. I worked security at Red Rocks amphitheater for a short stint in college many moons ago, the first rule of working there was - Don't talk to, F with, or even look strangely at the talent. It's very common in security companies to institute those rules. I work in A/V production now and sometimes do events with national acts, and it's basically an unwritten (sometimes actually written) rule among stagehands and production companies.

Default Re: Texans security guards fired for taking photo with Tom Brady

It is my understanding that security and event staff personnel are under strict guidelines in regards to any association with celebrities they serve. I have heard that some celebrities don't want staff to make any eye contact or look the other way when they appear.

It seems unfair since that could be the only time am employee could get a picture or autograph if the celebrity was willing and didn't feel imposed upon. In this case, it appears that Brady had a bigger smile than the guard. BUT, those are the rules that are set up front for whatever reason, and grounds for termination if they broken.

I've worked security at some very high dollar events with shaq, warren moon, and a dozen other celebrities you'd recognize (athletes, politicians, musicians, movie stars) , and there's a universal understanding in the industry that you don't poke and prod like a fan. If the celebrity wants to be sociable and strike up a conversation, cool. Be friendly. But you don't ask them for photos, autographs, or any other fan club bs. I have little doubt the 2 recently unemployed knew what they were risking. No sympathy here.

Multi-quote function man. You can respond in one post! Makes it easier to follow conversation and reduces clutter.

Not an attack! Just a request.
