It probably has it's advantages too, but that's a major disadvantage of our unfair dismissal laws.

Ahh, OK. Makes sense, but it can cut both ways, like you said.

You Americans are just outright crazy. You need Unions and workers protection from this sort of thing. An employer has no right to ask for your Facebook password nor discriminate against you if you didn't give it to them (or add their silly friend, which I'd start reporting to Facebook as a fake profile).

In the UK, if you were asked for Facebook information and then lost the your job for refusing to give it to the company there'd be absolute hell on and the company would be slammed in the media and by the authorities. In America... There's citizens standing up for personal corporate hood (something we don't have and don't want over here).

Not really. You can let someone go in the first 3 months for no reason at all. After the first 12 months it becomes harder and harder to fire someone, this si true. But, I've worked in several companies who have their own ways and methods of doing things and their get rid of people who don't pull their weight and that's the exact reason given and it stands up in court. They have to be fair and give the employee chances to improve and disciplinary action if that's not met, but really once you get a disciplinary at any company you're on your way out the door.

I don't get where you think it's hard to sack someone in the UK. They just have to be crap at their job. You can't sack someone for not having out Facebook information, or not getting on with employees or their boss, which is an untimely and extremely GOOD thing.

I like the fact that if there's a problem in the workplace employees have an avenue of recourse. I personally wasn't being paid right for work I was doing. Me and my boss had no problems at all, but he didn't want to put me onto the higher rate of pay (that I'd been getting years prior to his arrival ina management reshuffle) because it'd hit his yearly bonus. So, I stopped working hard. I did a slow down and made it clear to everyone why I was on a slow down. He couldn't sack me, because my work was spot on and I wasn't breaking any rules. Eventually upper management noticed my production had gone down, wanted to know why and instead of letting me tell them my boss reinstated my wage rate, took the loss and called it a day. We still get on great and now he's not my manager anymore (another shuffle) we have a laugh about it at Christmas parties.

Sorry, but employee rights are water tight here in the UK.

@ Rubers - Good point. I always found the notion that you could be fired for relatively minor infractions in the USA (this varies from state to state, of course) to be quite perturbing. Having said that, I never set up a FB account precisely because of what is now coming to pass.

I'm getting closer and closer to just getting rid of mine entirely frown.gif I don't like being the product of some corporation and seeing none of the money that's made off me!
