  1. Hello Jan,
    Following form this interesting article and the article on employees being dismissed for badmouting the employer on Facebook, is it acceptable to take disciplinary action against and dismiss an employee who is on maternity leave and bad-mouths the management on Facebook or BBM?

      Reply to Barry: Yes, there may very well be grounds for disciplinary action (and possible dismissal), but this should be left until the employee’s return from maternity leave.
