Daughter's Facebook Post Costs Dad his Settlement

USA Today reports Teen's Facebook Post Costs Dad $80K. The father settled his age discrimination suit against Gulliver Prep School for $80,000. The settlement agreement included a confidentiality provision.

And then, the daughter posted this on Facebook: "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."

The school claimed the father breached the agreement and refused to pay up. Last week, an appellate court agreed with the school.

The daughter better get a job, because I have a feeling she's going to be paying for her own trip to Europe.

HT: Coincidentally, my own father emailed me this story. You can also read more about this case over at Eric Meyer's The Employer Handbook.
