Workers Fired Over Internet Postings

Facebook is also home to groups called "Farm Boy's Farm Hands" and "I Have Been Terminated From Farm Boy." Both these groups feature the corporate logo. Members of all the groups frequently use their full names. On Friday, Devon Bourgeois was called into his store manger's office at the Kanata Farm Boy and shown copies of posts he had written Nov. 13. "I particularly was confronted for, and terminated for, admission of theft, which, based on the posts I had written, was under a hypothetical topic known as 'Only at Farm Boy' had these situations occurred," he said. NOT A 'CONFESSION' "My post was taken to be literal and as a confession, which it never was." During more than two years with the company, Bourgeois was promoted to supervisor and given three raises. "I was not a bad employee, I did not break rules," he said. "That's why I didn't understand why I was terminated so quickly." http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2007/01/17/pf-3394584.html
