The Art of Digital Discipline:
Managing Employee Social Media Use
& Best Practices for Imposing Discipline
CLE credits are only offered for live attendance and are complimentary.
With social media becoming increasingly present in the workplace, employers must be prepared to handle employee conduct as it transpires across digital platforms. While there are many legitimate business interests that require employee engagement online, from time to time, that engagement is not productive; indeed, when social media and other digital platforms are used incorrectly, it can be harmful or destructive for the individuals or businesses that are the subject of the content. When employees post objectionable, offensive, or unlawful content online, employers should analyze the legal and other risks that may result from the posts, and consider whether and what discipline may be warranted.
During the course of this webinar, we will discuss the landscape of employee social media use and share practical tools and tips for employers who are seeking to manage the risks associated with employee social media use and any discipline related thereto.
