Drawing the line between personal, corporate online presence

Posting harmful information related to your employer online is a shortsighted move that can end in termination, Toronto employment lawyer Doug MacLeod says in Maclean’s magazine.

“If you put stuff on social media that’s work-related, you can get fired for it,” MacLeod, principal of MacLeod Law Firm, says in the article. “Everybody gets frustrated at work. Making it public only hurts your employer. Why would you bite the hand that feeds you?”

The report discusses several instances of misuse of social media as it relates to an individual’s workplace, including complaints and court cases involving YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

“The law is slowly catching up to the exhaustive reach of social media into the workplace,” the article says, noting what’s personal and what’s corporate when it comes to a worker’s online presence is still a legal grey area.
