The Headlines today read: Federal authorities say firing for posts on Facebook illegal

Please note, the above is NOT the actual Facebook remarks in question.

A Connecticut woman was fired after posting disparaging remarks about her boss on Facebook.

This dismissal has prompted a first-of-its-kind case by the Federal Authorities who say that her comments are protected under the freedom of speech labor laws.

The company stands by its policy against employees discussing the company on the Internet.

The “On the fence” question: Do you think it’s grounds for dismissal if an employee spreads negative remarks on their “personal” Facebook page about the company they work for and its people ?
