Employees & Social Media

This is a question we get quite regularly “What can I do if my employee does something I don’t like on social media?” – well, in this particular case, the Employer was within their rights to dismiss. That isn’t always the case though – ask us if you need some assistance!

An employment tribunal has held that the dismissal of a long-serving employee over derogatory comments she made on Facebook about her employer was fair.

In Plant v API Microelectronics Ltd, the employment tribunal rejected the unfair dismissal claim of a long-serving employee with a clean disciplinary record who was dismissed over comments she made on Facebook about her employer.
