This case, called Bland V. Roberts, deals with an issue between Facebook and Linkedin. The issue was that employees were getting fired for liking the page of their bosse’s opponents. Six employees were fired, and sued because it disrupted their first amendment right. The supreme Court also ruled their termination unconstitutional. I think that a job’s involvment with an employees facebook shouldn’t be used against the employee, or punished for what they mention or use on a social media site because it does interfere with the first amendment right. Unless it’s harmful to the company or anyone individually, it shouldn’t be used for termination reasons.
