What if they posted it in the pass? Certain things should be looked over. In some cases some bosses show no sympathy or remorse and would be fire an employee and wouldn 't care. Allow me to explain and interpret facts and research on how social media and the internet can be gateways for people to get fired or expelled from school. What people put on social media and the internet should be their business and should be private in your school or work area.
Another fact that even made these soldiers frustrated was that the upper class soldiers did not tell them if their letters were sent or not. “These letters were never delivered and apparently the sender was never sent a notice of the offense.”(American). On the other hand, in Nicaragua, it is nearly impossible for the government to limit people from having access to any type of information, nor to stop them from expressing personal opinions, since everything is possible with the use of internet. The nicaraguan government censors confidential information from the people, allowing people to only hear a part of the story that does not harm or make them look
When a journalist wants to report an article, interview, survey, etc. they cannot report what people need and/or want to know, they can only report what the government wants the people to know (“Censorship Effects on Society”). They do not have the freedom to express what they really want to which deprives them of their rights. The United States and many other countries see the internet as a threat and a means of control which is why information of the World Wide Web is censored (Bennett). It is believed that the government censors as a way to have control not to protect citizens; by knowing more, they have the upper
However, Rocky can against as defamation from the friend. Conclusion: Rocky has no claim against the dismissal, hence dismissal was rightful. If his friend had not posted on the Facebook, the company probably could not have established that Rocky was violating the policy of the company. If the management could have heard from other employees that he had promotional items at the event, it could have conducted further investigation to establish if he indeed had the items; although the investigation would be complicated due to privacy right violations. BBONUS QUESTION: HISTORY
Other citizens are only able to access the intranet where all the information has been filtered by the government as part of their propaganda. The citizens have no choice, but to accept that whatever information provided to them is true. Over the time, they are disconnected from the rest of the world and unable to know what is really happening. Not only the internet is controlled, the citizens are also not allowed to make any overseas phone calls (Baek, 2012). If they are caught doing so, they will be severely punished.
I think it is an invasion of privacy but it is not against the law. We should all know by now that nothing is private on the web. Companies should tell their users that they use their information. This teaches a lesson to always remember that everything we do in this century is tracked and recored. If you do not want someone knowing do not put it on the web.
The section C: Conflicts of Interest section deals with staff members refraining from conflicts of interests. Conflicts of interests show a lack of principles, responsibility, and respect for stockholders. A conflict of interest can be described as one’s personal interest getting in the way of the company’s interests. Types of conflicts of interest can vary. However, in this section staff are instructed to refrain from engaging in company business with relatives.
When applying section 7 to activity on the Internet, courts should adopt a test that would protect the rights of employees to discuss problems that arise in the workplace while allowing the employer to respond to those problems and control its public image, when possible. In Eastex, Inc. v. NLRB, the Supreme Court refused to “delineate precisely the boundaries of the ‘mutual aid or protection’ clause,” reasoning that the task should be one “for the Board to perform in the first instance as it considers the wide variety of cases that come before it.” In that case, the Court suggested that, “even when concerted activity comes within the scope of the mutual aid or protection clause, the forms such activity permissibly may take well depend on the object of the activity.” In this excerpt, the Court suggested that the Board could use its substantial discretion to find that the purpose of the Act would be best effectuated in certain circumstances by considering the form of the concerted activity. In social networking cases, such a test would balance the employer 's interest in putting forth a positive online image with the employee 's right to engage in concerted activity to
With this regulation, sick people would only get sicker because they can’t afford the medications. Moreover, this accord also forces Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to monitor the users’ activities in the Internet. TPP requires the Internet intermediaries to filter all communications in the Internet for potentially copyright-infringing materials and disclose their customers’ identity to IP rights-holders. This basically means that the ISP will be spying on their users and give away their users’ identities along with their private data, meaning the customers’ privacy are not safe anymore. The Internet users can’t post their ideas freely in the Internet anymore, as only sharing a link to a social media might already be considered as a copyright infringement act.
This ruins the relationship you have with your kid, as it only makes them feel like they have to be secretive with you about their lives. They will find a way to get around whatever software you install; however, this time, if they ever encounter a cyberbully or predator, they will not tell you or ask for help because you have demonstrated that they cannot confide in you. Your children are not your property. The second they are born they are their own separate person with their own rights, including the right to privacy. As a parent, it is not your job to police what websites your children use or who they speak to; your job is to love them and teach them as best you can how to take care of themselves and how to come to you with their problems and

6. After being disciplined for criticizing a customer in an email (sent from his personal email account on a company computer), Joe threatens to sue the company for invasion of privacy. Unfortunately, Joe may not know this but his expectation of privacy has no basis in law. As a matter of fact, whenever an employee uses an employer 's electronics devices for whatever purpose, whether for company or personal use, that employee automatically relinquishes his expectation of privacy per se, as established by the law. Not only that the courts accord employers the power to conduct reasonable monitoring of employee 's communication to which they had given prior consent.
“Employers justify drug and alcohol testing policies by arguing that they are necessary for promoting health and safety in the workplace. Employees and unions argue that the policies either violate human rights law and/or the privacy of employees, although the infringement on privacy rights is the more prevalent basis for challenging such policies.”This article further states that No employee can be subject to random, unannounced alcohol or drug testing, except as part of an agreed upon rehabilitative program following treatment for drug or alcohol abuse;• An employer may require a drug or alcohol test where the facts give rise to reasonable cause; and• An employer may require a drug and alcohol test as part of an investiga- tion into an accident or incident in the
A business can’t fire an employee who is disabled – People with disabilities are protected by the law and employers will be penalized if such an employee is dismissed because of this reason. The Americans with Disabilities Act 1990 prohibits employment discrimination against qualified applicants or employees with a physical or mental disability (Reference for Business, n.d.). Disabled persons most often assume that they can’t be fired because of their disability. It is common for employers to be hesitant on firing these employees because of the fear of litigation even if they have not acted unlawfully. But this doesn’t mean that an employer CANNOT fire or discipline that employee (Kielich, 2015).
Accept only those “facts” that support what you already believe” This quote may explain why a facebook user never reads or shares article that goes against their preconceived notions because, according to Pitt, in today’s world people want to ignore inconvenient truths. Sunstein points out, “ The consequence is the “proliferation of biased narratives fomented by unsubstantiated rumors, mistrust, and paranoia.” Pitts concludes “And when people are determined to believe a lie, there is nothing more futile than the truth.” arguing further that the rumors and mistrust can create an alternative history based not on facts but stereotypes passed from generation to generation. Both columnists explore the result of people who do not seek out information that contrasts their opinion. Sunstein explains the spread of fake news through the studies of facebook users while Pitts uses personal experience to demonstrate the lack of critical thinking he sees through the eyes of responders to his
