Social Media Issues In The Workplace
23 June |1:00 pm - 1:30 pm BST150
It’s a lot more than just “sexting.” or visiting inappropriate websites! Do you have a social media policy? Are employees aware of it and have they been trained in its proper application? Is your social media policy aligned with all your other policies and/or collective bargaining agreement(s), the National Labor Relations Act (Section 7 Rights) and/or your state and local labor and employment laws, and the Federal Trade Commission’s regulations? Does your social media policy protect individual rights regarding confidentiality and the First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech? If you recruit using social media are you in compliance with the Fair Credit and Reporting Act? Does it protect copyrights, trademarks, intellectual property and trade secrets? Are your “take down” protocols adequate? Who owns an employee’s social media account(s) and what happens when they exit the organization? All this and more will be covered in this webinar so you can protect all stakeholders.
