If I posted something on my private Facebook page that was negative about a department I worked with and one of my Facebook friends took a snapshot and sent it to my boss's boss, can I be terminated? I deleted the post about an hour afterward realizing I should not be venting on Facebook and not knowing someone had taken a snapshot of it and sent it to my employer. Do I have any recourse with the person that invaded my privacy if I get terminated in terms of being able to sue them? It's likely the person disclosed my post in order to position themselves to take my job.
