Facebook, Twitter & Other Social Media Terminations
With increasing frequency, employers are terminating employees because of what they write on social media websites like Facebook and Twitter. We believe employees should be judged on their performance at work, not on the content of what they post online on their own time. Employees who have been terminated because of something they posted on Facebook, Twitter or some other social media website may have claims for wrongful termination under the National Labor Relations Act and other laws that prohibit adverse employment actions against employees based on their lawful activities outside of work on their own time. If you believe your employer has taken an adverse action against you because of your use of social media websites, contact us to discuss your rights and options.
