Sacked Employee to have Facebook Profile Examined

A sacked employee of Air New Zealand will have her Facebook profile examined by her former bosses, in a dispute over misuse of sick leave during her time of employment. Gina Kensington was sacked by the airline amid claims that she had misused 2 sick days that she had supposedly taken to care for her sister. She took her case to an employment tribunal in a bid to get her job back, however her former employer asked for access to her Facebook profile and bank records - in order to establish the use of the 2 disputed sick days.


This should serve as a warning to those misusing their own sick leave, who should remember not to post any incriminating evidence on their social profiles or make any damning bank transactions when they are 'sick'
