It's not quite as bad as threatening to fire workers but the Koch brothers have done the next bets thing by trying to scare their employees:
Koch Industries, other CEOs warn employees of layoffs if Obama is reelected
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 7 hrs ago

Koch Industries, the Wichita, Kan.-based company run by the billionaire Koch brothers, sent a voter information packet to 45,000 employees of its Georgia Pacific subsidiary earlier this month.

In it was a letter, dated Oct. 1, from Koch Industries president Dave Robertson implicitly warning that "many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences" of voting for President Obama and other Democrats in the 2012 elections, a list of conservative candidates the company's political action committee endorses and a pair of editorials: one, by David Koch, supporting Mitt Romney, and the other, by Charles Koch, condemning Obama.
UPDATE: Arthur Allen of ASG Software Solutions wrote a similar letter.
