A former employee for a construction company posted photos

A former employee for a construction company posted photos of construction jobs he did for his former employer ( The construction company ) on Facebook . He states on Facebook that "here are some of the construction projects I worked on for my former employer ( Company X )."The former employee and his former employer do not have a non-compete /non-solicitation agreement. It is assumed that the former employee has his own construction company which likely competes with the former employer.The owners of the construction company want the pictures taken off Facebook though it admits that the former did some work on the construction projects shown in the photos.Does the employer have any cause of action against the former employee that would require him to take the photos off his Facebook page ? For example, did the former employee need permission from the former employer to post the photos ?

I work for 2 men that co own a business. I made a loan from

Hello. I work for 2 men that co own a business. I made a loan from one of them -- my boss for $20,000. I signed a promissory note in March for him to repay starting in Sept--which i have started to repay. He was making payments for this loan on my credit cards so I could withdraw the monies from my card a little at a time in order to fulfill the loan amount. He told me to alter his bank stmt to show these deductions he was giving me as some type of credit to his account. I really didn't see any harm in this as I was changing a transaction of my own. Well I made a mistake and the accountant caught it. I immediately sent him the correct bank stmt explaining what my boss had told me to do. Well that went over like a lead balloon. The other owner I didn't make the loan from confronted the one I made the loan from. He lied to him & said he knew nothing about this loan! Well I got fired and now they are collecting the money back from their insurance company as I cannot pay it all back now.I do not have the money to do that with. He said he was not going to press charges. MY head is still swirling from shock. So the fact he is not going to press charges...does that mean the insurance company will not come after me for this money? And he said he will not let me collect unemployment or give me my last check.
