“Bosses force woman to show Facebook page to prove she's not lying,” reads this headline on the venerable technology website CNET. According to the article, the New Zealand Employment Relations Authority has required a fired flight attendant to provide her ex-employer with access to her Facebook page to prove, or disprove, the fact that her use of sick leave was legitimate.
