I have seen loads of youngsters get into trouble because they had anyone who asked on their friends list and they got reported for something or other normally along with copious amounts of screenshots and print outs of conversations.


Ask yourself how many people you work with are your actual mates or how many are simply people you spend a few hours with?

In my case I dont have mates at work with the exception of 1 person and he has left the company now.

As for managers on your mates list LMAO these are the people who will stab your granny to get a decent review and blame you for stuff they did along with get amnesia when it suits.


stab your granny?? don't you mean their own granny??

It's not just managers that might stab you in the back!
I had a Let's Talk because l was posting Union information about Bumblebee and suggesting ways that might help us. He didn't like what l was suggesting as it would have affected him and promptly took selective screen shots of my comments which were taken out of context and was promptly hauled up for a Let's Talk!
Nothing of offence was said or anything that could be classed as being bullying or of harassment but there you go!
As a union rep and trying to help and advise my colleagues in a very difficult time with Bumblebeel was appalled.
I feel he should have been there too?

There's nothing private on the internet.

Bumblebee is the name of the new dot.com routing software.  Let us just say that it appears to have teething problems.

Help needed !
Someone outside of work posted a video of a colleague on Facebook and tagged her in it . In the video she says something religiously offensive . She did not know the video was put on Facebook,  she did not like it or comment on it and once she knew it was on she asked the person who put it up to untag  her . She is not in uniform in the video and nowhere on her profile does it say where she works .
 Someone in work saw it and reported her to management , it's been through investigatory and is going to disciplinary does she have a defence as she has had nothing to do with it going on social media tia

I wouldn't have thought so as there is nothing identifying her as a Tesco colleague, though maybe a talking to would be expected but it's Tesco after all so anything could happen.
I knew a member of staff who had  a fight with a customer on site whilst off duty but still kept their job.

I can't understand why it is going to disciplinary as she has no control over it going on social media . Does everything that goes to disciplinary result in disciplinary action or is it more to scare you ?

Person could stroll about in a N*** uniform outside of work if they want as long as it is not tagged into a tesco website then it has bugger all to do with the company.

It's an interesting topic.  What if an employee says on social media that their employer is $hit but it fits the existing reputation of the employer being $hit?  Sports Direct springs to mind.  And if truth/accuracy is a defence, I would think there is huge weight of anecdotal evidence about Tesco on this site.

Problem being it's still bringing the company into disrepute. If you want to reveal the truth about your employer (for example Tesco ), an anonymous dossier with supporting evidence would be a better way to go about it. If it's news worthy you would have no trouble getting media coverage, if it was your intent.

The point here is though , the colleague said nothing about employer , there is nothing to suggest who employer is and she had no knowledge of it going on social media but they are going to disciplinary ! I can't find anything on line about something being put on social media without your consent and if who is taking the disciplinary is a benchmark , this is looking VERY serious.

There is no rule, contractual term or policy in Tesco of which this employee is in breach, should not therefore be referred to disciplinary, simples!

This pretty well typifies everything that is wrong with Tesco. You get people at work that drive a horse and cart through for example Safe and Legal checks and this is reported to MM time and again and nothing is done about it, then again a driver was reported for drinking whilst driving a Dot.com van on loads of occasions once again this was ignored by MM. Also another colleague was driving into work absolutely rat-arsed, so much so that they could barely speak, also reported time and again and also ignored by MM. then low and behold some-one posts some innocuous comments and posts on social media and said comments had nothing to do with Tosco and there is a full blown investigation launched by MM in which loads of colleagues were hauled into meetings which took up many hours of time which could have been better used by everyone just getting on with the jobs they are paid to do. In all of my many years at work I have never encountered such inept Management and the most inept ones are mostly Senior Team and above, you know the most highly paid people at work :question: :question: :question: :question:

Have them quote the following case, and urge their managers to contact the tesco legal department before they make fools of themselves.

A few years ago when under a restructure we got told by SM all our social media accounts had to be made public until the restructure  and consultation process was complete and that was a legal requirement to ensure nobody was communicating about it online, told him to stop being so silly and wished him good day when he told me, some colleagues actually thought he was being honest.
