Facebook is facing a class-action lawsuit from an employee who says she was fired after posting a controversial Facebook ad criticizing the platform.
The employee, whose name has been redacted from the suit filed in New York state court, alleges she was promoted after her comments made her a “disgusted” employee, The New York Times reported.
Facebook fired the employee in December 2016, citing her anti-Facebook sentiment.
The suit is seeking damages and an apology, according to the Times.
Facebook has not commented on the suit.
The lawsuit claims Facebook promoted employees without considering their backgrounds, including the employee’s work experience, and because she had “strong opinions about Facebook’s policies.”
The employee, who was fired in January, says she left Facebook because she was unhappy with the company’s corporate culture.
The lawsuit alleges that she was terminated after complaining about her Facebook posts, according the Times article.
Facebook is currently fighting the lawsuit in court, saying the lawsuit violates the company policy on “Employee Rights,” and that the company is “prepared to defend against this frivolous action.”
The company has also been working to make its policies and processes more transparent.
