Earlier this week an employee at Walmart was fired for posting the confidential information on his social media account. The big retail giant Walmart is making a big buzz in the news by firing an employee for posting something which they said is confidential.
The employee was an active contributor on the online website Reddit with more than 54,000 subscribers.
He was fired on Monday and announced that the termination was entirely his fault, it was done fair and the company presented the printout of his Reddit post in a meeting prior to his termination.
He also suggested the other Walmart workers to “be mindful” of Walmart’s confidentiality. In a post, he wrote, “Realize that Walmart is a huge corporation and if they want to, there’s good chance they can be and will find you.”
This comment indicated that they are being constantly under watch and the company won’t hesitate to spy on the employee’s social media handles and their posts.
Speaking on the same the Walmart’s spokesperson said “We support our associates right to share their opinions and give feedback, but we take the sharing of the confidential information in any form very seriously,”
“The associate was terminated earlier this week for sharing sensitive business information in violation of company policy.”
The situation has created a sense of fear among the workers at Walmart but it's very clear that the company won’t spare such things in their company.
