Cameron Little, who’s Facebook profile lists his occupation as a dinosaur wrangler at Jurassic Park, was a customer relationship manager until his firing June 28, and is seeking to get his job back. Cameron Little was an employee of Credit Corp., an Australian debt collection company was dismissed from his position and according to Bloomberg Law, the Fair Work Commission Deputy President Peter Sams has rejected an application from Cameron Little to return to his position of employment.

It has been reported that Cameron Little, who made comments critical of one of its clients, Christians Against Poverty, in a posting on a Facebook, said that he made the comments on his own time, outside of work hours. Cameron Little posted a comment on the Christians Against Poverty’s Facebook page stating, “For real bro, you should put a little more of funding into educating consumers on how the world works, rather than just weaseling them out of debt.” It has also been reported that Little made a sexual comment about a coworker.

Christians Against Poverty identified Cameron Little’s employer and complained about the posting on Facebook, Peter Sams reported, also adding that “For a young person who seemingly frequently used Facebook, it strikes me as highly implausible that he was incapable of adjusting his privacy settings.”

The National Labor Relations Board released a report in August based on their investigations into 14 cases of employees who had been fired over Facebook activity.  Huffington Post has reported that in four of the cases they found the firing to be unlawful because the employee was engaged in “protected concerted activity.” This means they were acting with fellow employees to initiate group action against a perceived injustice by their employer.

In the December 10 ruling Peter Sams has expressed that, “The applicant is perfectly entitled to hold views about any organization and to express such views in the public domain, but he is not entitled to do so in a manner which injures his employer’s business.”
