Remain Compliant with Labor and Employment Law Policies regarding Social Media in the Workplace

Businesses and employees are increasingly expanding their presence in social media. Employers who use social media will find that they may be violating rules under the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), regulations from the Federal Trade commission, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Health Insurance and Portability Act, and state security requirements, and many other laws. Disciplining employees for their comments on social media can be fraught with problems and so can, not disciplining employees for their comments on social media. What is an employer to do?

Courts and administrative agencies are finally handing down decisions that address these legal concerns. The decisions are specific to social media, including variations by industry. This webinar by expert speaker Susan Fahey Desmond will cover all of the legal issues and the decisions being made, and how to make sure your policies, actions, are in compliance with the law.
