Employee Use of Social Media

Employee Use of Social Media

Employers are increasingly terminating employees for social media use both in the office and outside of the workplace. Employees have to be careful about their social media use. Using social media during work hours for non-job-related activities can result in termination. Using social media outside of the workplace can also result in termination. For example, social media posts that the employer determines reflects negatively on the company's image can result in the employee's termination.

The employer also has to be careful about terminating employees for social media posts. Employees have the right to discsuss certain topics such as working conditions or wages. This activity is often protected activity - meaning that the employer cannot retaliate against the employee for engaging in the protected activity.
