Judge Rules Calling Your Boss a “Mother F***er” is Not Grounds for Firing

In 2011, Hernan Perez wroth this on his Facebook page:

‘Bob is such a NASTY MOTHER F***** don’t know how to talk to people!!!!!! F*** his mother and his entire f****** family!!!! What a LOSER!!!! Vote YES for the UNION!!!!!!!’

After discovering the entry, his boss,  Robert McSweeney, fired him.  Perez then sued and federal judges on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that his firing was unfair because no one had been fired for cursing before.  But if I were you you, I would not call my boss a “Mother F***er” just in case the ruling gets overturned.

He published the controversial post during his shift two days before the venue voted to unionize. Therefore, his post was considered union-related speech which is protected by the National Labor Relations Act.
