Amazing that people can be hired to "spy" on employees and what they say on their Facebook pages...wonder if these employers will be paying for healthcare benefits for the "spies"......AND for all of you EMPLOYERS commening on what this woman posted....you want loyalty from your employees, you give loyalty to them!!!!! Too many employers think they are the "Almighty Power"...you work your employees to the bone for little to no recognition, but you expect them to bow down to you...think again, without your employees, where would you be??? Obviously you can't do the job on your own, otherwise you wouldn't need employees....APPRECIATE THEM...don't USE THEM for your personal and materialistic gains.
Sounds like the wounded duck syndrome, its ok to have it, but don't try to burn it on the employer forehead. I have friends that put every thing on face book, why do they wont everyone to know? I joined face book long ago, and had a bunch of friends, some of witch i did not know. how do you have friends that you don't know?
If you work for me, you don't have to eat the peanut butter we make, or you don't have to drive the kind of car we make, It wont make me unhappy, but if you advertise it on face book you would be fired. Some people want to make little waves while not realizing its defacing the company. Do they not have a place to go if its an emergency?
I hope she sues the heck out of them. She did not make defamatory remarks about her place of employment only stated the fact that she had to take her daughter to another clinic. She has a right to sue and she should.
An employee's job is to promote their product. Causing descent among consumers is an automatic pink-slip in any era. Any complaint about service should come from the consumer.
except she was a consumer in this case :/
Exact reason not to have Facebook it is either stalked by employers, stalkers, law and government its just another complement to the Drones that are spying on us and soon they will be able to stalk you anywhere any time. Yes privacy is gone and now technology rules. Sad just sad
Another victim of employers stalking their employees. It's another a matter of time before people start fighting back.
she made a statement,,,work had no appointments... that is just that, a statement,,, she was not being defamatory" or "disrespectful" ..she caused no harm. someone is feeling really guilty about how they treat people but just don't want to face up to that,,,its much easier to point the blame over to the innocent person.
What happened to a second chance or maybe a warning. Companies are to easy to just fire you and thats it end of discussion. If she had no other problems before I would talk to HR if they have one. Her boss should not be at his position by just reading this. The boss should be moved out of his position and she brought back.
Second chances died a long painful death. You owe your company 100% obedience and 100% loyalty until they are ready to throw you under the bus on a whim. When the corporations finally officially take over, the Stripes on the American Flag are going to be re-designed to look like 13 tire treads.
Hey! How about avoiding commenting on Facebook about work? Duh.
