Invasion of Privacy

An employee at a manufacturing company has a confrontation with his manager in front of other employees. Later that day, the employee posts about the confrontation on his blog, calling his manager a “jerk” and notes how much better the company would be if the manager got fired. The employee also speculates the only reason that his manager has a job is because she is dating a vice president in the company. Management is notified about the blog, and the employee is given a warning about conduct and moved to another department. The employee perceives the department change as a demotion and sues the company, stating invasion of privacy.
