More than a decade after Facebook's founding, social media continues to be a blessing and a curse to employers. How far should an employer go to regulate the social media activities of its workforce? Is a social media policy really necessary? How can employers navigate the more complicated issues involved in disciplining employees for their conduct on social media? Are there risks to utilizing social media in recruitment? During this session, we’ll discuss successful policies and approaches that will allow your company to minimize legal risks while maximizing the benefits of social media.

During this complimentary live webinar we will discuss:

  • Social media harassment and discrimination
  • Facebook "friending" and online relationships between management and subordinates
  • Legal uses of social media in recruitment and investigations
  • Wage and hour issues, such as non-exempt employees' participation in company blogs or social media sites on and off the clock
  • Restrictions on social media at work
  • The use in litigation of evidence secured from social media sites
