MIAMI, Fla. – There’s a fine line between what should be posted on Facebook and what should be kept private but one college student’s indiscretion cost her father a fortune.
Patrick Snay sued his former employer, Gulliver Preparatory School, for age discrimination after his contract with the school was not renewed.
Gulliver settled the case and agreed to pay Snay $80,000.
The family told their daughter, Dana, about the good news, saying she suffered ‘retaliation’ during her time at the school.
According to the Miami Herald, she posted about the settlement on her Facebook page.
The post said, “Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”
What she didn’t know about the settlement was its exact terms.
The school agreed to pay Snay $80,000, as long as there was a confidential agreement involved.
However, that post breached that agreement just four days after the deal was done.
Gulliver appealed the original ruling and won.
