Don’t Get Canned Over Social Media

Most companies want their workers to be active on social media because employees who use social media outperform those who do not.

 

BUT…you certainly don’t want to get terminated over it.

 

Sometimes employee social media usage gets out of hand—whether they’re using it at home or from their work computer. These situations can put companies in a prickly position, as they are forced to decide whether the social media blunder is severe enough to warrant termination.

Here’s a look at five common reasons people get fired for their social media usage

 

  1. Bad mouthing customers.
  2. Making distasteful or derogatory comments.
  3. Disparaging the employer or coworkers.
  4. Disclosing sensitive, inappropriate information.
  5. Inciting or celebrating violence.

 

Bad Mouthing Customers
A common reason employees’ social media usage gets them fired is they made a disparaging remark about a customer.  

 

Making Distasteful or Derogatory Comments

It’s not just employees that get in trouble; sometimes executives get in trouble, too by saying thing that are just down right distasteful.

 

Disparaging The Employer or Co-Workers

Employees may use their personal social media accounts to complain about their work, or even outright disparage their manager or coworkers. But if they get caught, it can come back to bite them.

 

Disclosing Sensitive, Inappropriate Information

Since nearly everyone carries around a camera on their smartphones these days, photographs are getting employees in more and more trouble.

 

Inciting or Celebrating Violence

How someone reacts to current events or news, especially if those reactions are seen as insensitive or celebrating violence and illegal activity, can lead to trouble.

Have a great day!
