Employees often ask questions about whether they can use social media or their cellphones in their workplace and employees have to be careful because when you engage in comments or communications about your employment, you may be incurring some liability especially if those comments are not favorable to the employer. We’ve seen employees who were terminated for what they’ve posted on their Facebook pages about their employment. We’ve also seen cases where employees who’ve discussed the terms and conditions of their employees with other co-workers on social media have some rights and protections under the National Labor Relations Act. So, employees should be cautious about the use of social media in the workplace as well as outside of the workplace with about their work conditions.
