Surfing Facebook May Endanger Your Employment

The title of this post may sound slightly exaggerated, however losing a job was literally what has happened to an employee of a Swiss insurance company.

The story is simple and sad at the same time. The woman said she could not work in front of a computer as she needed to lie in the dark. However, she was then seen to be surfing the Facebook. This statement was made by her employer Nationale Suisse. This fact has destroyed the company's trust in the employee. As a result, the woman has been fired.

The fired woman says that she was indeed in bed and was surfing Facebook from her iPhone. Moreover, she accused her employer of spying on her and other employees by sending a mysterious friend request which allows access to personal online activity. Of course the company quickly rejected the accusations. According to the official information, employee's Facebook activity had been stumbled across by a colleague in November, before use of the social network site was blocked in the company.
