Does a private business have the right to punish someone for something they did that wasn't illegal when they were not at work?

If it reflects on the company or the company’s name, yes.
Common business practice.

Yes, if it reflects on the business.

Depends on what your contract with your employer says.

A little concerned about the use of the word “punish” in this poll. Are we talking drawn n quartered or sent home without pay for the day?

Like if a women is fired from a daycare after staring in a porn video with 6 other men, yes

Why, just because she was filmed in the act of sex she’s incapable of caring for children? What’s the justification? What if she has sex with 100 men at one time but no one films it? OMG I wonder how many babysitters have had sex with men they weren’t married to!!!

This is easy.
Fire her. Shut down the show.

Possibly. If a morality clause was included in a contract

It’s not illegal to be an A-hole to your co-workers, but your employer can take disciplinary action against you for your toxic behavior. IJS
