China doesn’t like

Does your employer restrict your tweets?

“Marriott Firing Tied To Tweet Over Tibet,” The Wall Street Journal, March 5, 2018 B1.  Employee in Nebraska fired from hotel group after liking a tweet from a Tibetan group.  China doesn’t like it when people refer to Tibet as a separate country.

Good thing he didn’t break a law.  Then he really would have been thrown under the bus to preserve his employer’s reputation (and business) in China.  Did he violate a policy?

As he looks for a new job, does it matter?

As an employer, how do you mitigate against this type of risk?  What policy do you put in place?  How do you train your employees (and agents) to comply?  How do you monitor compliance with the policy?
