Facebook can kill your job 19 Jun 2019

Facebook is a marvellous way to let off steam to your friends and tell them what you really think.

Employee Bert ran into trouble at work and his wife thought he had been shabbily treated. She sounded off on Facebook.

This led to Bert being dismissed immediately.

Sure, he could have taken an action against his employer for wrongful dismissal, but where would that get him when he next applied for a job? Does anyone want to employ a person who looks as though he/she might stir up trouble in their firm?

Mrs Bert’s intemperance led to friction between her and her husband, and ultimately the end of the 30-year marriage.

Anything you put on Facebook is likely to be there forever. Just be careful what you write on social media.
