I've never heard this term before.  Instead of "boss kidnapping", my first thought was more like "let's sneak out while the boss's napping".  Second thought was "I thought it would be more likely that Joe would go postal before the boss snapping."

Handling "bossnappings" poses dilemma for Sarkozy
Managers have been held hostage at factories for up to 24 hours by staff angry about layoff plans in four separate incidents since March 12. In a variant, a billionaire boss was blocked in his taxi by employees for an hour on March 31.

"What's this about holding people captive? We have the rule of law in this country. I will not let such things happen," Sarkozy told a group of entrepreneurs on Tuesday.

The same day, workers at a British-owned plant detained four managers, including three Britons, and held them overnight. As in the three previous bossnappings, police did not intervene. Staff let the managers go on Wednesday after promises of talks.
