Running Head: Their View: Employers must be cautious reacting to employees’ social media activity The Case: In the case of “Their View: Employers must be cautious reacting to employees’ social media activity.” (Felts, 2013) Article Review: This article gave examples of three different cases where employees were fired due to their social media post. I am choosing the first scenario on Skinsmart Dermatology. They fired an employee because the employee made some derogatory comments on their personal Facebook page about the company. The employee didn’t pose a group concern about policy or procedure but boasted about their dislike for the company and requested to be fired in their post. In this case the NLRB sided with Skinsmart Dermatology decision to terminate the employee. The employee’s comments were personal and were not found to be protected, concerted activity. This case was based on the facts in which the employee made personal grievances that had no effect on the other Skinsmart Dermatology employees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
