You might think that there should be consequences if an employee bad mouths the company, calls their manager unscrupulous names, or posts embarrassing photographs or comments about the company on Facebook. You might also think that an employer would be well within their right to reprimand, discipline, suspend, or fire the employee for this type of social media content. You might even think that there is no way the law could provide employees with the right to unabashedly tweet about internal workplace disputes. But you might want to think again.
