Can my boss fire me for trashing him on Facebook? 


That depends.  If you are an at-will employee and say something personal about how he or she really gets your goat, then you can be fired.  However, if you make a complaint of public concern, such as, “My boss makes me violate the law,” you may be protected by the First Amendment and Connecticut law.  Finally, if your complaint involves the terms and conditions of your employment and seeks to involve other employees, you may be protected by the National Labor Relations Act.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
