Call for social media policy

The Barbados Employers’ Confederation (BEC), the Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) and the Human Resource Management Association of Barbados (HRMAB) all say that rules are absolutely necessary today when platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blogs are being widely utilised.

Some employees have found out the hard way that a questionable post, tweet or comment, whether it is about work or not, could cost them their jobs.

For instance, a couple of months ago a chef at a leading restaurant was dismissed after a number of salacious voice note conversations and screenshots of messages between him and another man, were posted on social media. It is understood that his employers deemed that the publicity had brought too much negativity to the restaurant. (MB)
