Employees sometimes say insubordinate and highly offensive things about their employers and supervisors on Facebook and other social media sites. Faced with stinging “public” criticism, employers often react strongly and terminate the offending employee. Frequently the termination leads to litigation at the National Labor Relations Board. See my article on the most recent “Facebook Firing” case.
