Should it be legal to fire employees over their social media activity?

  • It could be justified to be fired over social media activity.

    Whether we would like to come to terms with this reality or not, our time off the clock can still be monitored to ensure the misrepresentation of a company does not occur. Although this might belief may receive opposition, companies do believe that as a representation of their company, you should conduct yourself with dignity and respect at all times.

  • No, it should not.

    An employee's social media, especially if made public, can be seen by almost anyone and could reflect badly on the company that the employee works for. If someone says something very offensive, or says something disparaging and/or harmful about the company that they work for, it can very much affect the company in question if they don't take some kind of action.
