Facebook post now facing disciplinary.

Recommended Posts

I shared two Facebook posts on my timeline and these caused offence to one of my Facebook friends at work. 

He reported me and now I face a disciplinary.

 

When I was informed of this I immediately removed the posts and offered to apologise to aggrieved person which he was willing to accept

management refused this although in past disputes between work colleagues management have actively sort this form of action. 

 

I've never had a good relationship with my manager over the five and a half years I've worked there, even though my work record is excellent  and feel some sort of victimisation. 

 

We have no union so am in this alone and wondering on a course of defence. 

Can anyone advise me please?

get hold of your social media policy if you have one and see what it says

 

at the end of the day if you have posted offensive stuff it's no different to saying it - prep on that basis.  Sexist/ racist stuff may be viewed as gross misconduct.

would it be construed as bringing the company into disrepute?

Can you tell us what happened, tom a? It would help other caggers who find themselves in the same position, plus the advisers like to know the outcome for people they've helped.

I got a final written warning. Thought I would lose my job. The post were reported as racist but after investigation this was not the case and was never intended to be. Still found to offend one of my work colleagues hence the warning. 

I've took it on the chin and learnt from it.
