Why Should You Attend:

Despite the business pluses of these sites and tools, they also create issues of security and legal liability for employers, and still relatively little case law exists for organizations to turn to when weighing the risks. This webinar will help employers better understand the numerous laws that employers need to be concerned about when terminating employees for what they say or do on social media. And what you need to know before you terminate employees for comments they post on social media sites.

The majority of cases of social media postings that get employees in trouble have to do with behavior or communications that display poor judgment. The definition of poor judgment can be spelled out as part of a job description with examples, with the caveat that the examples are not inclusive. Training in this area may be the more effective way to reduce incidents of social media postings that harm employees and the reputations of businesses.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to discipline an employee for what they say or do on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter

  • Recent case law and mistakes to avoid when terminating an employee for comments on Facebook and Twitter
  • How to protect your organization from these legal pitfalls
