Worker fired for Bebo posting

"Serious misconduct"


A warehouse worker has been fired after mentioning her work on the social networking website Bebo.

Deena Pawson said that "work sux" and complained that being forced to work until midnight was "gay like the management". Pawson's boss read the comments and fired her for serious misconduct, claiming she had brought The Warehouse into disrepute.

Pawson, who lives in Whangarei, in New Zealand, said she was just having a bad day at work and does not think the comments justify her sacking. Employment lawyer Ashley Sharp told the New Zealand Herald that under NZ law employees are free to make comments about their workplaces as long as they do not seriously harm their employer's reputation.
