You're speaking as a Canadian. You don't 'get' how it works here in the States, and what constitutes discrimination.
The man was threatened to be fired for VISITING ATS because, as the OP said:
"he doesn't want me visiting these websites because they lie and distort facts."
Sounds like the trouble is not the fact he was online, it was that he had certain beliefs or affiliations. Maybe you don't understand, but here IN
AMERICA, that's a big deal. It borderlines on religious/political belief.
If the employee has broken no rules of his employee "handbook" or stated company guidelines, but was old not to visit CERTAIN websites on his own
breaks, that could be teetering the legal line.
But again, you're seeing this as a CANADIAN, and don't appreciate the implications.
