Labor and Employment 101: Managing Social Media in the Workplace

Social media has created high-risk, high-reward opportunities for companies to promote their brand and reach millions of potential customers. It has also opened up avenues for employees to destroy a company’s reputation, harass co-workers, and engage in personal social media activities during work hours.

In this session, our labor and employment attorneys will discuss the challenges surrounding employee’s use of social media, including circumstances under which you can discipline employees for social media postings, implementing a lawful social media policy,  the use of social media in hiring and surveillance, and the NLRB’s new focus on social media – the conflict between employee rights and business needs.
