Seminar Description

Can your employees use social media in your workplace?  Can they complain about you and your company on the internet?

With the astounding increase in social networking internet activity over the past several years, today's employers are faced with a quandary: how can you promote your business in today's high-tech environment, while still protecting your company's reputation and confidential business information and your employees' privacy and free speech rights?

LightGabler employment law partner Karen Gabler will present critical workplace guidelines for employers on controlling and monitoring their employees' use of social media inside and outside the workplace. 

Topics covered will include:

  • The essential elements of a social media policy (and which provisions to avoid!)
  • Required disclosures when promoting your business on the internet
  • Recent 2011 cases impacting whether the employer can truly control an employee's social media activity
  • Balancing your workplace policies with employee's private off-duty activity
  • Addressing workplace harassment claims arising from off-duty use of social media
  • What to do when your employee bashes you and your company on the internet
