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, email 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 act wisely – or 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 about the new risks created by the Information Age – and the best strategies to avoid them – in a recording of this informative webinar presented by Business Management Daily: Employees Online.
