Looks like executives need to start paying more attention to the nuances of employee social media activity. And that should go for finance executives, as much as any other top manager in a company.
How come? The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently filed a complaint against an ambulance company, American Medical Response of Connecticut, saying the firm illegally fired an employee for comments she made on Facebook. Seems the woman's supervisor had asked her to prepare an investigative report about a customer complaint concerning her work, according to an NLRB press release . When the employee asked for union representation, her request was denied, and the employee later posted negative remarks about the supervisor on her Facebook page. That, in turn, inspired further negative responses from her friends.
