Drafting An Employer Social Media Policy
This is a 50-Minute CLE program that thoroughly details the many considerations in drafting a Social Media Policy for the workplace. With the increasing use of social media including Facebook and Twitter, employee use of social media is fast becoming a subject of concern for employers. Employers who wish to place restrictions on employee use of social media must be aware of the risks, benefits and guidelines for preparing employer social media policies. This program addresses the risks and benefits of checking employee or job applicant social media accounts. This program also provides basic principles and guidelines for drafting an employer social media policy, summarizing the guidelines recently issued by the National Labor Relations Board. A sample social media policy approved by the National Labor Relations Board will also be provided. In addition to the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. §§ 151-169), this presentation also addresses other federal laws to take into account when preparing an employee social media policy.
