My employer said it was grounds for termination over a Facebook post
2 Answers from Attorneys
Your employer sounds like they keep tabs on their employees' use of social media. This is becoming more and more prevalent among employers, and the employee's posts on social media can indeed lead to termination of employment. There are some things you simply should not post to your social media.
You need to contact an employment lawyer who is local to you to help you deal with this issue.

Unless you're specifically protected against such summary termination
for this type of reason by a valid contract of employment, you're likely without a remedy (in my opinion).
