Some rogue, very recently fired (as in still in the building), employees took the news that they were included in a mass lay-off rather poorly. The Australian is reporting that recently laid off employees have crashed HMV’s Twitter account.
The employees sent voluminous tweets from HMV’s own Twitter account. One of the tweets claimed to be drafted by a former Human Resources office professional and said: "We’re tweeting live from HR where we’re all being fired! Exciting!!”
Just a friendly reminder that when you are terminating employees with access to sensitive information and accounts, you will want to have a plan in place to cut off access before you fire that employee. I have, unfortunately, seen employees who are being terminated because of a company’s harassment or workplace violence policies be extremely belligerent in their termination meetings and spiteful after they leave.
