My boss printed out my private Facebook messages… what should I do?

AN angry employee found printed-out screenshots of private messages she sent on Facebook to a previous staff member in her manager’s office. 

After working for the same company for 11 years, the disgruntled employee was caught red handed sending messages about hating her job online.

“On Thursday I must have forgotten to log out of my Facebook.”  

The next day, when putting a file on her manager’s desk, she noticed print outs of the fatal conversation she had with the ex-employee.

“I went straight to my supervisor and told her what I seen and she looked ghost white and just shrugged her shoulders and said ‘ok’.  

“She obviously knew about it as her and the manager and very friendly.” 

The employee is now looking for help from forum members on what to do next.

She added: “Should I raise a formal grievance? 

“The thing with that is I feel there is nowhere to go since I was being rude about supervisor, manager and owner.  

“It’s a private company with no external HR.”  

One member said: “That’s terrible. Everyone has the right to moan about work on their own private Facebook messages!

“Nobody has the right to access your account and print those off.” 

Another added: “I imagine that sending messages, in private or public, slagging off your company and specific names managers could be classed as bringing the business into disrepute. 

“Rather than raising a grievance you probably need to start grovelling if you want to keep your job. 

“Maybe use this as a kick up the bum to find a new job.”
