Apple Employee Fired After iPhone Rants on Facebook

Common sense in general as well as company policies often prohibits employees from doing or saying certain things that would be detrimental to the company. Apple has recently fired an employee because of his rants about the iPhone, published all over the ex-employees Facebook page.

The ex-employee was a specialist at Apple’s Chapel-field store in Norwich; that happened before he started telling everyone on Facebook that one certain app “f***ed up” the time zone on his phone. His sarcastic status was also updated with the occasion of The Beatles collection being made available on iTunes.

Despite his claims of “unfair dismissal”, the job “could do without” was still lost because of Apple’s strong and strict social media policy; this prohibits critical remarks about the brand. The tribunal said: “we take into account their position that the Facebook posts were not truly private and could in fact have been forwarded very easily with the claimant having no control over this process”.
