Criticizing your employer on social-media sites such as Facebook may not be the smartest career move there is, but can companies fire you for expressing such opinions?

It depends. Until recently, it was thought businesses had free rein to dismiss workers who post complaints or rude comments on Facebook, Twitter and the like. But, as The Wall Street Journal reports, workers are fighting back, using a Depression-era law that protects workers who speak their minds on some topics related to the workplace.
