Employees Online: Social Media at Work
Avoid legal risks of Facebook, Twitter, blogs, e-mail and more!
Employees Online: Social Media at Work

WARNING: This event includes explicit language and sexual content, all quoted from employee communications.





Today’s brave new world of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, Google and IMs has led to a scary new world for your organization. Social media, e-mail and the Web are creating shocking new legal risks for U.S. employers:
  • A flight attendant is fired for posting risqué pictures of herself in uniform. She sues. Was that free speech?
  • An IBM employee loses her disability benefits because the company says her joyful Facebook photos show she no longer suffers from major depression. Is that legal?
  • A job applicant is rejected after a Google search reveals a “brandishing weapons” conviction. Did HR expose the company to a potential lawsuit?

Where’s the line between prudent monitoring and invasion of privacy? Are sexy or violent postings mere “venting” – or a warning of workplace danger? These are the problems that experts are debating … and that attorneys are litigating.

On November 17, learn about the new risks created by the Information Age – and the best strategies to avoid them – in an informative webinar presented by Business Management Daily: Employees Online.

This unique interactive event will provide you with definitive, practical answers to the challenges you’re dealing with, including:
  • The 5 reasons why you MUST put limits on employees’ blogs, Tweets and other social-media posts
  • When are employees' online postings considered free speech … and when are they libel? (A 5-question test will let you know)
  • Developing a workplace social media policy
  • How the National Labor Relations Act applies in the virtual world
  • Can you fire workers if they post embarrassing (but true) details about your company?
  • Internal AND external legal risks of social media
  • The 6 steps to safeguarding your organization against today’s online legal threats

In addition to providing an in-depth review of all these topics and more, Jon Hyman will also address all your questions in a comprehensive Q&A session. Imagine what it would cost you to ask a lawyer these questions in his office!

And because this is a webinar, there is no limit to the number of attendees you can invite to sit in, including your HR team … top management … in-house AND outside counsel … and employees throughout the organization.

You owe it to your employees to provide a safe workplace, and to protect their rights to free speech and free expression.  But you’ve also got to protect your company’s reputation and trade secrets. Employees Online provides detailed advice on how to do both – effectively and legally. Register TODAY!

Sincerely,

Pat DiDomenico
Editorial Director, HR Specialist
