Can you get fired because of Facebook?

The number of employees dismissed because of inappropriate messages posted on Facebook is growing in the U.S. and Western Europe. Will we see similar cases in Romania?

Daniel Cirstea, a partner at Dragne & Asociatii, answered that question for realitatea.net: yes, but only in certain situations: “To the extent that, through their posts on social networking sites, the employees fail to meet their obligations to the employer, the latter can terminate that person’s employment for disciplinary reasons,” he said.
