Employee Fired Over Facebook Comment Settles Lawsuit


The National Labor Relations Board and Dawnmarie Souza agreed yesterday to end a lawsuit over Souza’s firing, which occurred after she made some derogatory remarks about her employers on Facebook.
The financial terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but we do know that Souza will not be returning to work at the same company.
The woman’s employer, a Connecticut ambulance company, is also changing its blogging and Internet use policies in ways that will no longer prohibit employees from talking about work online, even if such talk constitutes what the company called “online badmouthing” at the start of Souza’s hearing.
