Talking Smack about Your Boss on Facebook Can Get You Fired

by Ayvaunn Penn, Your Black World

There is a whole new cyber world out there that has yet to be tamed by corporations and law officials. No, this is not about who is and is not on Facebook.   Nearly every business, and seemingly every person, is on Facebook. This is about what is being said on the popular social network and how that should or should not affect your job. The Huffington Post reports:

“The federal agency tasked with enforcing labor law has been fielding complaints from workers across the country who have been fired or disciplined for their work-related indiscretions on Facebook. Although the feds have taken up the cases of a number of jaded workers, others have essentially been told they have no one to blame for their workplace troubles but themselves.”
