Some states are an employer at will state. That means they can fire you for any reason. But in reality, any company can do that anyway.

Fraid so. If you are in a union, you might not. Otherwise, fraid so.

They were committed to their job before they were committed to the wrong they did to wind up in jail.

It depends on the local labor laws. But mostly yes. In fact they can fire you for whatever reason they like.

Legally you can be fired for any reason beside race, religion, creed, or gender. So unless you were in jail for one of those reasons, you can be fired for being in jail.

It's not your employer's fault you were incarcerated.

Yes. In fact chances are your state is an "At Will" employment state, which means you can be fired for almost any reason other than discrimination.
