Social media has transformed the way we live and do business, but it has also created a host of new compliance issues in the workplace. During this webinar we discuss:
- the benefits and risks of using social media to screen job applicants;
- limits on when an employer can terminate an employee for inflammatory or offensive posts on social media;
- federal restrictions on common employer policies;
- and how traditional concepts of harassment and retaliation in the workplace are applied to employees’ behavior on social media.
Note: In June 2018, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) released new guidance on workplace rules, policies, and employee handbook provisions that appear neutral, but could be interpreted to unlawfully interfere with an employee’s exercise of rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The new NLRB guidance adopts a more employer-friendly approach to these workplace rules, substantially relaxing the concerns discussed in this webinar regarding a CAA’s social media policies. See CAPLAW’s August 2018 e-Bulletin article for more information about the new guidance.
