Teacher Forced to Resign

A teacher was forced to resign when videos of her beach holiday activities went viral and upset parents of the posh school she worked at. www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/twerking-primary-school-teacher-sacked-7726815

This can happen here. In certain cases the law will allow an employer to dismiss an employee for what that they may have said and done in their private life.

This is clearly a controversial area. An Employee will reasonably say that what they do outside work is none of the employers’ business and is an infringement of their private life. However the Employer will claim that in some cases what their staff does outside office hours is their business – especially if it affects their reputation or business or undermines the ability of the employee to their job.

The question is this – where do you draw the line?
