Blog Websites and Big Brother

Posted by Sheri Harris on Sunday, June 13, 2010
Employers or anyone interested in finding out about an individual's personal life have resorted to searching for a person through blogs or website. The question remains is: are we suddenly becoming victims of free speech and expressed thought in America?

Viewpoints regarding employment, religion, politics may not be permitted to be discussed on the job resulting from differences and the conflicts that arise in belief and way of life. Certainly everyone has a human right to express their thoughts or standpoints without threat to anyone who is willing to listen or read about it.  America's job market has become a threat of censorship to the employee in that anything in value of free speech or text is now held against you regarding your employment.

Therefore, employees are being terminated for views and discussion that are held elsewhere, meaning not necessarily where the employee works. To the extent that now the "personal" life and time of the employee is no longer their own because of the stipulation of comment and or suggestion being held against one resulting from a blog or texted statement.

If we as citizens have a right to expression and freedom to disagree, then why are livelihoods being taken away from persons that express their thoughts?  What is the interest of an employer who spies upon their employees by accessing blog websites? Furthurmore, if the employee fulfills his or her job responsibility and adheres to the workplace enviornment, then what is the reason for an employer to specifically search out an employee to find out information regarding their social life, and other activities outside of the workplace?

What control or governance is within a company's corporation to suggest that by monitoring an employees text in expression or blogged website, making it an acceptable mechanism for controlling employees with regards to what they do with their life away from work and used as a means for discriminatory actions against an employee?

Blogging and texting are not illegal. To use messages to convey thoughts, ideas via the internet as long as you are not soliciting in an "unlawful" way is also not illegal.  To discuss you current employment situation should not be considered illegal either.

Termination as a result of blogging should not be a threat to deter those who express or comment on something that is unsatisfactory. Employees should also not be coerced into fabricating a situation on the job, if such information is worth having the outside public know.

In any case where the employer is on the defense with regard to blogging about their company, a company handbook and or orientation during hire should be issued, in that the company has regarded blogging and texting about company matters is considered private and prohibited. To have proven that the employee has violated company policy, the employee must be informed regarding certain company matters in specific that are prohibited in discussion, text or blog prior to termination. America has outsourced its jobs as well as its freedom. So who is America providing most of its loyality to and why? And what does America have to gain by establishing censorship from within?
