Apologise Expect to be disciplined and possibly sacked Read your company's disciplinary policy and policy on IT use (if they have one) carefully Check your privacy settings on facebook Don't mention work on facebook Don't have any colleagues as friends on facebook Expect your own complaint to possibly be taken less seriously by whichever manager is hearing it
I'm sorry you are having such a hard time at work and I can't offer any advice except that to slag anyone off on a public forum is bound to have consequences. This has been highlighted often enough in the news recently for you to know better. Sorry, it isn't what you wanted to hear, but it is unprofessional and now you have been found out. If they haven't seen it delete it, but if they have then I would follow flowery's advice.
they had it printed out i appoligised and deleted it in front of them just hope that they dont take it further i am job hunting it at the monent but makes me soooooooooo mad they way that they can do or speak 2 me like shit and that is ok!!!!!!!!! but i cant air my mind what happened 2 freedom of www.mumsnet.com/te/6.gif
Unfortunately the fact that you have slagged them off on Facebook means that they will treat you like a child. It is totally unprofessional to slag off your employer on Facebook. In some companies it is a sackable offence.
Whether you have an existing complaint about any manager doesn't negate the fact that you have commented about your employer/colleagues on Facebook (and negatively, to boot).
When will people start getting that this isn't acceptable?
I'm sorry, OP, that you are feeling upset and bullied - that's not on. But it is never acceptable to post comments about your professional role online, or, at least, never in the last 10 years from the contracts I've signed - I remember when I got my first job in (my current) industry this sort of stuff would be covered under the "acceptable IT usage" policy, but my previous employer x2 had comments on websites written into a different section too. My current employer specifically lists "websites and social media platforms" from what I recall. And since I signed that 2 years ago maybe they've altered the new ones to mention Facebook, Myspace etc by name now, for all i know.
Anyway, if you don't get sacked this time, count yourself lucky - many haven't been so fortunate. My own organisation is quite large, but the office I work at only has space for a maximum of 40 - 45 project employees - and I know of 2 cases in the last year where people have been fired (1) or faced a diciplinary warning because of crap they've put online (the other one).
I also know for a fact that my boss has not hired people because of stuff he's found online about them. Not officially, of course - "stronger candidates, etc." but I know what goes on in private.
"unprofessional to slag off your employer on Facebook. In some companies it is a sackable offence."
And just to expand on that particular point, in my current contract I'm not even allowed to say what I'm doing, online. So even positive comments would land me in the shit. Because we do a lot of ad hoc, short burst projects which shouldn't be leaked to outside parties (like the media, etc)
So even if I were to say something nice, but it was too much detail, I might get into trouble e.g. "wow those guys at the cancer charity are really organised - great meeting today! looking forward to getting the proofs out to them next week" - bad bad bad! So I don't risk it - ever!
Surely you remember a time when we didn't have facebook to air our dirty laundry in public. What did you do when you were pissed off with someone then? Have a moan in rl or on the phone. Not on the bloody internet where it remains forever.
I done something similar before FB with the office manager. We were on a works night out in the toilet slagging the 'big' boss off. Commented on how many men she had had from the operations team blah blah. Went on for well over 10 minutes. Opened the toilet door and she ws standing with her hand on her hip
Lesson learned in my case. My job was very uncomfortable for a while
