Social Media & Today’s Workplace
Social media (SoMe) has continued to impact the workplace over the last 18 months (since this topic last aired).
- What are some of the latest developments impacting employers policies, practices and procedures?
- How may employers balance a demand for workplace civility with employees’ use of SoMe?
- What rights does an employer have to restrict employees’ use of company time, property and systems to access social media?
- If an employee uses his or her own time, computer and SoMe account to blast demeaning and uncivil comments about the company, coworkers or a supervisor is there any action an employer can take?
- Are policies addressing face-to-face professional conduct different from those addressing professional conduct in SoMe?
Join this interactive program as we consider:
- The National Labor Relations Board’s latest “Guidance on Handbook Rules”
- How do these issues apply to an employer’s professional conduct policies that require civility in personal as well as electronic communications?
- How do employers protect the confidentiality of their payroll information with current trends related to pay transparency?
- What is a “savings clause” an employer can include in a social media policy that may help make such policies enforceable and limit liability when the policies are challenged?
