  •  Here in New York, an employer cannot do that (6+ / 0-)

    or make that part of their policy.   Unpaid time, is not sanctionable/controllable under our laws currently.

    Which tells me that this employee may have a good case against unlawful termination, but being within his probationary period could make the difference in the end.

    My current employer just gave us their "policy" on social media, telling me that if an investigation is warranted, then I'd have to provide my passwords and usernames.

    I laughed.  My conduct outside of work has no bearing on the job I can or cannot do and I didn't relinquish my privacy rights by being hired, after the fact.

    -7.62; -5.95 The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.~Tesla
