Hawaii Federal Court Rules Hertz Rent-a-Car Not Responsible for Employee’s Facebook Comments

In Howard v. Hertz Global Holdings, Inc., a Hawaiian Federal Court found that Hertz Rent-a-Car could not be held responsible for its employee’s Facebook comments about one of its customers.

While employers should welcome the outcome, it did turn on the facts, and could have produced a different result under different circumstances.  Employers therefore, should consider installing safeguards to ensure proper social media use by their employees.

The employee had posted comments over social media making fun of the customer’s sexual orientation, announcing that his credit card had been declined, accusing the customer of being a faker who pretended to have money, and encouraging people to “run that faka over!!! lol.”  In response, the customer sued Hertz for negligent supervision, negligent retention, and negligent training.  All three claims require proof of the typical negligence factors: duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

Politics, Religion and Facebook – Interesting Concept Mayor Kenoi

Mayor Kenoi’s facebook account just posted the following:

I was at the 2012 Hawaiʻi Prayer Breakfast this morning at the Hilton Hawaiian Village with Dr. Ravi Zacharias and the leaders of Hawaiʻi, including Sen. Daniel Akaka, who I got to honor. It was a moving morning, with 2,000 attendees from churches and communities across Hawai‘i and lots of aloha.


This is the passage that I selected to read, Ephesians 6:10-20 –

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Facebook, Twitter, Newspapers, Blogs and the 2010 Census

I find myself a bit perplexed at times in where the direction of content and things will go at times on my blog.

Obviously newspapers are dying out real quick as my blog gets more page visits then the Hawaii Tribune Herald.

I’ve had my blog longer then I’ve been a member of facebook or twitter, and while they are great for meeting new folks and driving folks to your site… do you lose focus on what you really want to do with your own blog by getting wrapped up in so many other social media things.

I’ve never depended on anything but myself to promote my blog, however, there are many tools I could add to this site so folks could send it off to other social media sites.

Does it become a sell out when you start using tools to promote your site other then yourself?  I don’t think so.  I’ve just been behind the scene on things.

We have a lot to offer on the Big Island… for the next few months I will be the supervisor for the East Hawaii section of the Big Island for the 2010 census.

I’ll still be able to blog about everything I’m doing… I just need to keep confidential stuff confidential.

It will be interesting watching the local newspapers print stuff  that might not be true like they have in the past regarding the census.

I’ll cut back my blogging for the time being, and my training doesn’t begin on Oahu for another 8 days still yet.

Look forward to doing my best.

Has it Really Been 22 Years?

Has it really been 22 years since I graduated from Sehome High School in Bellingham, Washington?

sehome

I just joined Facebook, and I’m seeing all my old classmates and filtering through things.

I can tell this is going to be a new habit like myspace was when I first joined it. Now I haven’t even checked myspace in a long time and rarely do.

Are you on Facebook? You know my name.
