#You'reFired@Work: Social Media and Employment Law

Saturday, March 12
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St

"Be respectful to the company, other employees, customers, and competitors" seems like sensible language for a social media policy. But the National Labor Relations Board has told us that it is illegal. And criticism of a company on FB may be protected if just one other employee presses the “Like” button. This talk will explain how to create clear workplace policies to protect companies from legal liability while promoting effective use of new social media channels. Topics include:

• Using social media in recruitment

• Protections for social media posts by employees

• Recent decisions on social media based employment terminations

• Creating a legal and effective social media policy
