The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1lpDj4m) the court on Friday ruled that Joseph Talbot violated Desert View Care Center’s policies in January 2013 when he posted that he’d like to “slap the ever loving bat snot out of a patient.”
Talbot was fired and was granted unemployment benefits by the Idaho Department of Labor. But the Industrial Commission reversed the decision.
Talbot appealed, contending Desert View never outlined its social media policy.
But court documents say he acknowledged receiving it and agreeing to it when he signed for his first paycheck.
Talbot argued he didn’t have bad intent, but the court says that’s irrelevant.
