Sacked for Going on Facebook?

Posted by in Industry News

Yes that’s right, there are people out there being sacked for surfing on Facebook. This time it happened in Switzerland. A woman took time off work because she could not work in front of the computer and needed rest in bed.

Coincidently the employer found out she was on Facebook and took action from there because she had broken the trust between the company.

“This abuse of trust, rather than the activity on Facebook, led to the ending of the work contract,” the company said.

The woman said she was on Facebook with her iPhone and claimed that the employer have been ‘spying’ on her. This was rejected by the company and said her profile was found by a colleague in November.
