Faceless and legless corporations

Filed under: — adam @ 10:26 am

This is a blog post about Queen of Sky, a Delta flight attendant who was fired with no notice and no chance to make amends for posting “racy” pictures of herself on her photoblog. She has filed a discrimination lawsuit against them, claiming that the pictures are no different from the many others that male flight attendants have made publicly available. I can see her point – the pictures (at least the ones I’ve seen) are not porn. I can also see Delta’s point – companies would like to control their public image. I haven’t made up my mind yet about who’s right here. Technically, I suppose it comes down to whether Delta had a published policy on employee communications that was clear and understandable. But, on the other hand, lots of people have blogs, and that number is growing daily. Blogs mean publicity that can’t necessarily be controlled, and corporate policies will need to deal with that.
