Delta Lays Off Blogger for Content

(tip via Kathy Shaidle) BBC/ Marketing Vox News> Yet another worker has been disciplined for blogging. Delta Airlines stewardess Ellen Simonetti found herself laid off after her Queen of the Sky blog showed a picture of her in uniform. The blog, a moderately fictionalized account of life in the air, never named Delta as her employer, but one photo did show a pin that indicated she worked for the U.S. airline. Suspended without pay for publishing “inappropriate” images September 25, she has since filed suit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming unfair dismissal. She notes that several male employees have blogs and pictures of themselves, but have not faced penalties.
