You might consider what you say on your own time over the internet no business of your employer, but is it?
A case in New Jersey involving two employees that reportedly made complaints about their workspace will test privacy rules for workers. They made the comments on an invitation-only discussion group on myspace.com. The employer found out about the complaints and then fired the workers.
The workers took the company to court, saying the comments were private and they had no idea they would be spied on. However, analysts say people can't expect privacy when they post comments on the internet.
The case goes to trial June 9.
