CH - 'Ill' worker fired over Facebook

(BBC)
A Swiss woman has lost her job after her employers spotted she was using the Facebook website when she had claimed to be too ill to use a computer. The unnamed woman was suffering a migraine and had told her employer, Nationale Suisse, she needed to lie in a darkened room. The company said its discovery that she was also using Facebook destroyed its trust in her and prompted her sacking.
