Most workplace-related laws were written long before the creation of Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. This can often leave HR professionals (and attorneys and judges) in difficult situations, especially when employees or applicants post questionable content online. How do you comply with laws that make no mention of social media or the internet? What type of online content is protected? When can you consider (or even look at) an individual’s online postings? Does the First Amendment offer employees any protection for their online content? How does the increased prevalence of remote work affect the influence that social media might have on the workplace?

In this interactive session, Anna and Ben will provide practical answers to these and many more social media-related questions. Using examples taken from actual cases (and the presenters’ own imaginations), Anna and Ben will walk participants through various scenarios and provide real-world advice on how HR professionals can respond to online predicaments that often appear to have no clear cut solutions.
