They say that if you talk about your fellow employees on Facebook, you can get terminated from your job even if it's done on your own time.

What you do on your own time or on your own computer is your business, not your employers or anyone else's.

If you do it on the company computer, then your employer has the right to terminate you. If you do it on your home computer, your employer should not be able to terminate you under any circumstances.

Your employers have no right at all to be meddling in your personal affairs.

Michael Voisinet, Michigan City
