He has no right to look at what you're doing online. If he does, why in the name of all that is holy are you living there? He has no right to comment on what he has illicitely viewed. You're in no way beholden to him.

Just report his crimes with due gravity and find a new job if things aren't handled properly.

USAmericans really must start rebuilding that concept of freedom you once had so long ago. It never really was in the first place, but at least you believed you had it.

You could start creating it for real, if you tried. I'm working on that very thing over here in Northern Europe. Please, all of us who are able to think for ourselves, please let's assert our right of self-determination. TPTB only have power because we are too lazy to do live our own lives. Change things now with your own actions, one move at a time. There's no need for meetings and charters and mission statements. Just lead your life as you know is right. Bit by bit, the effort will snowball.

Maybe your grandchildren will have true freedom.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news my friend, but Florida is a right to work state, which means your employment is at will which means you can be fired for any reason as long as it is legal.

If your manager knows more about the job functions than you do, trust me when I tell you that he WILL find a way to fire you legally if he wants to.

He told you that if he finds you on that web site again he will fire you? Well, don't let him find you on this website again. Isn't there some kind of privacy screen you can buy for a laptop so other people can't see what you're doing on the computer? Find out what what his interests are, go on websites that reflect those interests, minimize the page[s], then pull up a REAL website like ATS. If he comes around again, pull a bait and switch 'till he leaves again.

There's more than 1 way to skin a cat.



Peace

MAybe its because you are using your employers bandwidth which allows him to tell you what sites you can visit-If you were to connect to the net in your lunch break using someone elses bandwidth,your employer will no longer be able to see what you do on his network,and thus will not be able to fire you.

Could you log on to the net through a different route?

A nearby wi fi hub maybe,or get yourself one of those cell phone/net connect type usb adapters.
Bit of a shame your boss thinks that he has the power to control yourr net use,just because you sell groceries for him IMO...

Sounds like hes on a power trip...

Oh well,If you do leave or get fired,don't forget to leave this thread open on a work computer just before you leave

Well, sounds like your boss just displayed his gigantic level of dumbassery to you. Your immediate response should have been laughter, or a casual smirk.

Now that you know he is an idiot, and someone who wears his heart on his sleeve, you should find it incredibly easy to deflect this knucklehead, not to mention probably manipulate.

I know Win Dixie takes out life insurance on their employees and when they die they cash in on them.

may i recommend a book for you "The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists" by Robert Tressell. It may help you understand the conditions in which you work and why you feel powerless to change them.

This is a great circumstance to" feed the beast ". I got news for you, don't
turn down any other offers for a job. He wants to fire you. Who knows why, you could ask all day and never get the truth. Anyway "feed the beast" comply with what he said like he is God. Do you have to be on the puda at all during lunch? No. So don't be. Don't even bring it. Start looking for a new job when and where it's possible.

When you get a chance fire up a conversation telling him you were only
on ATS as a debunker because you agree with him how full of crap
those sites are. Do this to make his head swell. This will help you to test the waters so to speak.

See if he stay's on your azz. If he does he will find some reason to fire you. He' powertrippin, but he may have motive for your termination.

You know have have only recently heard of this practice. Not to go to far off topic but have you considered taking out a life insurance policy on the CEOs of Win Dixie? Turn about being fair play right? If your death should benefit them should not their unfortunate passing benefit you? Just some food for thought for that dead peasant policy.

One thing to keep in mind if this duffas does fire you is that under the right to work laws in Florida , any employer who is contacted by a place that you are seeking to work can only say that , yes you worked there and the dates you were employed there. If he says anything bad about your work habits or anything you can take him to court and basically get a monetary settlement. Happens all the time there.

Florida Employment Law


Employment at Will

Under Florida law, employment contracts which do not specify a definite term of employment are terminable "at will." In other words, an employee can quit or be fired at anytime for any reason, other than those proscribed by law (e.g., race, sex, handicap, age, etc.). Recently, some plaintiffs have challenged Florida's at will policy, arguing that the employer's personnel handbook laid out a termination procedure requiring good reason or cause. The courts, however, have largely resisted these arguments and continue to view most employment contracts without a definite term of employment as terminable by either party at their discretion.

Employment contracts which specify a definite term of employment are not terminable at will. Instead, both parties must abide by the terms of the agreement, otherwise they may be subject to a breach of contract lawsuit.

In Florida they can fire you for almost any reason, but that reason has to be legit. Winn Dixie is shady and so are there security measures and staff. I was shopping there one evening with my Wife, and her son and her sons friend and while I was shopping ran into my Boss on the medicine isle. We had a whole cart full of groceries. As im talking to my boss a guy approached me and shoes me a empty box of tylenol PM...he then asked me if i knew what happened to the bottle that was inside....I told him no, and he said..you sure, i seen what you did. I told him you must be seeing things cause I didnt do anything. Long story short, he called me a liar, embarresed me in front of my boss and in front of other customers. Funny thing is, I had a box of tylenol on the cart and clearly showed him the unopened box i had in the cart. Anyway it was fun. You have the right to do whatever you want on your time, so go for it. Oh by the way, dont work for Publix they are much worst, but thats a different story. All I can say is I live in Lakeland Fl and know alot about Publix's practices.

Bad situation, man.

Let's put it in perspective, though.

You are working at a grocery store.

Find what you are good at trade-wise, buy a $20 occupational license, and start hanging signs. Grocery store work has 0 future.

Yea i worked at WD for awhile....they can and will fire you for anything. AL law says that you can be fired for no reason and I am sure Fla is the same way.

I have no advice for you but I did wish to extend you my sympathies. You might want to ask him what he knows about ATS and why he has the opinion that he does.
I think he is being completely unfair - BUT- you are using the companies wireless server, are you not? On that basis alone I think he might have the authority to tell you whether or not you can even use it.
If others use it and catch no flak I think you might have a case for freedom of speech should he decide to fire you over it.
At any rate I hope you can work it out AMICABLY. This is also an opportunity for you to get a better understanding on who your boss is and what he believes. There might be a happy ending for this depending on your attitude, tact and personality.
I for one appreciate your work here on ATS, you are a frequent contributor bringing important stories and information to ATS.
My thanks and Best of luck to you

I'm sorry, but technically he can fire you for starting this thread. Companies don't like their employees on social forums because they sometimes say bad things about the company they work for. Its kind of like banning the greatest form of advertising, "word of mouth." Someone working for the Eagles NFL team got fired for saying he didn't like that the team released a certain player. When I worked for Giant, they put up signs saying we couldn't saying anything or mention work at all, even if we didn't mention where we worked. Corporations have this wierd way of underminding the Constitution and making it that they have the law, because these days, your job is everything, and they have the power.

Some here think Misoir is using the employer's internet link.

He said "I have my own internet through a spring datacard".

He seems to use his own wireless subscription, and not the employer's.

I have a sprint data card. This means I don't use anything of his. I have my own internet.
