    Foul-mouthed Facebook tirade costs worker her job

    The story of a Corner Brook, N.L., newsprint mill worker who unleashed her fury at managers in a Facebook post is being cited as a cautionary tale for disgruntled workers who vent on social media.

    The woman, a 13-year veteran of Corner Brook Pulp and Paper, was fired after she posted a Facebook status that attacked specific managers at the newsprint mill.

    This is a serious and growing issue, please use due care and caution when posting anything to social media, nothing is secret and your employer can and will charge you if you over step your bounds.
