Employee Use of Social Media: Everyone Is Doing It, How Should Employers Handle It?

PRACTICE GROUPS

The NLRB says online social media is the new “office water cooler” where employees can discuss workplace concerns without repercussions. Thus, the NLRB has penalized employers that restrict employee use of social media. Other laws pertaining to social media use are evolving, and employers must be prepared. Learn:

  • How to properly respond to employee posts that are harassing, defamatory, or disparaging
  • Emerging legal hazards in employee use of social media
  • Use of the internet and social media in recruiting and hiring
  • Written policies and other best practices to minimize risk and avoid liability
