Who Should Call In

Attorneys, executives, HR and management professionals involved in employment law and policy.

Why You Should Call In

The use of social media in the workplace continues to be a major source of concern for employers. Discovery requests for information from litigants' social media accounts are now routine in employment cases, and the NLRB has aggressively expanded its reach to encompass uses of social media that many employers heretofore banned. While some employers continue to monitor employees' social media usage at work and during the job application process, state legislatures have begun to push back, and congressional action may not be far behind.

In this 90-minute TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel will provide practical guidance on how to draft, implement, and monitor a corporate social media policy in light of the current state of the law.
