Social media is ubiquitous. Employees use their Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up with family and friends, to network, to post music, to inform their online “community” of personal and/or social events, and, sometimes, to vent about their day on the job. What happens when one of their Facebook friends shares the online rant about a supervisor with said supervisor or someone else on the job? And what if the employer has a policy that prohibits employees from making “disparaging” remarks about their supervisor online? Can the employee be fired? The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) says “no”.
