    Feds: Woman illegally fired over Facebook remarks

    This is an interesting case. The employer claims the fb postings were the last straw. She was being suspended for other offenses - hence the reason for her spouting off.

    The danger here is that if an employee knows they might be canned, they might start posting evil things on the internet so then they can't be fired. Slippery slope.
