SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Popcorn Johnny: Have any cases like this made their way through the court system.  I'm not convinced  that employers have the right to fire somebody for comments made by somebody on their own time.

So if you're paying someone to do a job for you, and they publicly ridicule you while under your employment, you'd be cool with that? Should employers have the right to publicly ridicule their employees?


They already do with my paycheck.

onyxruby: As an IT guy, anything you post online can be read -even if you use SSL.

If you work in health, financial or anything regulated you should assume all such posts and emails are monitored by professionals.

Don't write or say anything at work you wouldn't otherwise say without your boss standing there.

For many industries monitoring like this is required by law. They do it because they have to.


Heh.
At my last real big-time job, I suspected we had key loggers installed. Randomly, I used to type really, really rude sentences about my bosses doing unnatural sexual acts with each other and animals.
Hee-haw.
What a bullshiat world we've made for ourselves.

Red_Fox: IT doesn't have time to follow your damn facebook posts because we're too busy trying to retrieve your files you stupidly deleted for no apparent reason


Jokes on you, I deleted those files on purpose so you wouldn't have time to follow my facebook posts.

Sucka.

As an IT buy in the healthcare industry I think that your post, at least as the US is related, if full of shiat.

Frankly, I don't give a damn what you do while on the clock as long as it doesn't end with me having to do more work. I don't care if you spend your day trolling Fark.com, that's between you and your supervisor.

KidneyStone: If there's one thing I learned after almost a decade of internal investigations it's that many coworkers with rat you out for no apparent reason or gain.


Too damn true.

CSB:

Back when I was 18, I had lunch with a coworker saying I wasn't happy with the crap I was having to put up with and I was thinking of moving to Dallas. The only ones who knew that were my fiancee at the time and this coworker. I get fired some short time later and in the process I'm told that since I was planning on moving to Dallas, I obviously didn't have any company loyalty. Yeah, I was planning on moving to Dallas in a year or so after I'd saved up enough from my crappy minimum wage ($3.35/hr) job to afford living in a real city.

Oh well, it made me piss or get off the pot, so I joined the Navy and got some real job experience. Pay still sucked.

Worked at a place where the receptionist vented about job satisfaction and her boss her MySpace account. She said all sorts of shiat "I wish he would just die" and other indirect violent statements. She forgot that she had befriended her bosses wife.

She was fired the next day.

Cue that image of the girl posting about how she hates her job and thinks her boss is hitting on her.

Turns out the boss is gay, and she was a slacker.
