Simon published another article on First Reference Blog entitled “Arbitrator upholds just cause termination in part on negative Facebook post”. In this case, the employee posted extremely negative comments about his Manager and Employer after he was terminated for just cause. The Arbitrator upheld his termination and commented that the negative comments in his Facebook page only reinforced his negative view of the employer justifying the termination. This case illustrates how dangerous an employee’s comments on social media can be and the need for employers to implement non-disparagement clauses in their severance letters. A link to the article can be found here.
