Daughter’s Facebook brag costs her family $80K
MIAMI – The former headmaster of a Florida prep school lost his discrimination case against the school when his daughter decided to brag about the $80,000 deal on Facebook.
The Miami Herald reported that 69-year-old Patrick Snay worked at Gulliver Preparatory for several years when his contract was not renewed in 2010.
Snay claimed age discrimination and won an $80,000 settlement from the school.
But before he received the settlement, his daughter, Dana, a Boston College student and a part-time Starbucks barista, violated the confidentiality agreement by posting about the win on Facebook.
The agreement contained a standard confidentiality clause, prohibiting Snay or the school from talking about the case.
“Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver,” she wrote. “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”
The school appealed and won the right not to pay the settlement on Wednesday.
