The employee entered into an explicit agreement at the start of their employment that outlined what they could and could not do. They were under no legal obligation to take said job.

If the clerk does not violate any State or Federal Laws in the execution of killing said robber, then representatives on behalf of the robber have no grounds to sue either the clerk nor the employer.

However, since the clerk violated store policy he is subject to termination of employment and the employer is protected by law in doing so.

Hope that's clear.
