Hello Joshua. You stated “According to Yelp.” None of this information would be in the public if Jaymee had not written her post. No responsible HR person would put that type of information on … and I’m going to emphasize this … TWITTER. You hold this company, which I will note here is disliked by hundreds of thousands of decent small business owners because of their predatory practices in “encouraging” small businesses to pay monthly fees for useless ads that might even hurt their traffic as well as their review system that — while valuable in warning people off the truly bad places and providing some recognition for the very best, is pretty sucky for all those in-between — to a lesser standard than you hold a young single mother, who by her account, was trying to do a good job and who cared.

The company does have a higher standard. You do not have to either agree with Jaymee, understand anything about good employee management, or care.

But there’s something wrong with you if you cannot see something wrong (including legally) in a huge company taking to TWITTER to discuss an employee’s job circumstances. Maybe, presented with the information, someone like recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia would find that the company was “okay” in doing this just as Amazon did with its attacks on former employees who’d been interviewed by the NY Times or written here on Medium. But that would be Scalia. Not everyone else, not the law, and not me.
