    I was called to my manager's office to discuss a potential workplace bullying complaint filed against me. My subordinate had accessed my personal Facebook page and read private messages. She read a message about herself that wasn't favorable and wanted to make a formal bullying complaint.

    Due to the nature of my work, I did not feel I could continue to work with someone who would read my private business and resigned from my job. Is there any recourse for her invasion of my privacy? As this was part of a group message, I am also concerned for the violation of privacy of the other members of the conversation.

    Hi,

    Did she actually hack into your Facebook account? Or did she just read something that was left on the screen?
