Marking a first in Sri Lankan Corporate history an inquiry is to be held on Monday against an employee of a reputed Lankan corporate for allegedly making sexually derogatory remarks and inciting racial hatred on Facebook.

Speaking to Daily Mirror Online, premier outbound service provider Eco Team (Pvt) Ltd CEO Anuruddha Bandara said the existing company guidelines permitted for action to be taken against errant employees.

“The existing guidelines permit us to take action against employees who do such things on social media. However, we are going to be more specific and will introduce strict guidelines specifically covering social media from next month onwards" he said.

An employee of the organisation is alleged to have cast racially abusive and sexually derogatory remarks on females.

The action marks a first in Sri Lankan corporate history following suit with international norms, which strictly scrutinies the conduct of their employees on social networking sites.

An inquiry into the conduct of the employee is to be held on Monday.

Bandara also said educating employees of their conduct on social media, which is public domain is of paramount importance to Lankan corporates.

" As responsible corporate citizens we have to educate our employees regarding these issues. Social media is spreading like wildfire among the youth in rural areas and we have to therefore educate them as to how they should conduct themselves on a public domain" he said, (Hafeel Farisz)

    Gnanasara and his gang are openly spreading racial hatred and the government doesn't seem to be doing anything.
    All just an eye wash.

    Treat the root cause eliminating polarizing visions. Sex crimes are rampant in village level,ground level and hi-politik circles. Marathon manhunts won't be needed.

    Sri Lanka is too uncivilized for morden technology. Get back to writing in the sand or caves (gal lipi").

    what an irony??????
    social media is for freedom of speech, and it is a way of explicitly portraying one's own personality.. regardless of good or bad
