Be careful what you say about your employer on social media

STAFF can be sacked for what they say about their firms on sites like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, an employment law specialist has warned.
And people cannot expect personal communications made on work computers to stay private, according to Claire Kingham of law firm Viberts.
The lawyer has advised businesses to have a clear policy on social media and personal email use to make sure they can act to protect their reputation if an employee makes derogatory comments.
She said that where an employer is acting within the parameters of a policy, then employees may not have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
