From Speaker John Coleman:

Today’s brave new world of MySpace, blogs, Google, and IMs has led to a scary new world for your organization.  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?  
  • A Cisco Systems blogger faced a libel lawsuit for disparaging a competitor. Should Cisco have embraced his blogging or shut him down?
  • 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.

     Learn the new risks created by the Information Age – and the best strategies to avoid them – in an informative audio conference CD: MySpace, Your Liability.

     This unique CD 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
  • When is employee blogging considered free speech … and when is it libel? (A 5-question test will let you know)
  • How not to be suckered when using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as recruiting and networking tools

  • 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?
  • The 7 essential elements to include in your employee blog and web site policy
  • The 6 steps to safeguarding your organization against today’s online legal threats

    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.   MySpace, Your Liability provides detailed advice on how to do both – effectively and legally.  Buy the CD now!
