A Swiss woman has lost her job after her bosses spotted she was using Facebook when she claimed to be too ill to use a computer.
The woman was suffering a migraine and had told her employer, Nationale Suisse, she needed to lie in a darkened room, reports the BBC.
The company said its discovery that she was also using Facebook destroyed its trust in her and prompted her sacking.
But the unnamed woman, who is from Basle, said she had been accessing the internet on her iPhone while in bed.
She said she did not believe the company’s assertion that a colleague had inadvertently noticed her using Facebook, accusing it instead of spying on her.
She said the company had created a fictitious Facebook persona which become “friends” with her, allowing the company to monitor her online activity.
