’Ill’ worker fired over Facebook 「生病的」員工因為上Facebook被炒魷魚


A Swiss woman has lost her job after her employers spotted she was using the Facebook website when she had claimed to be too ill to use a computer.


The unnamed woman was suffering a migraine and had told her employer, she needed to lie in a darkened room.


The company said its discovery that she was also using Facebook destroyed its trust in her and prompted her sacking.


But the woman told a Swiss newspaper she was innocent. The woman said she had been accessing the internet on her iPhone while in bed.


She said she did not believe the company’s assertion that a colleague had inadvertently noticed her using Facebook, accusing it instead of spying on her.


She said the company had created a fictitious Facebook persona which become "friends" with her, allowing the company to monitor her online activity.


But the company says it followed a simple logic: that those who are well enough to use Facebook with a migraine are well enough to work with a migraine.
