The explosion of social media in recent years, including employees’ increasing use of social media both within and outside the workplace, presents challenging employment-related issues. Indeed, widely-publicized incidents such as the embarrassing on-the-job video posted to YouTube by employees of Domino’s Pizza illustrate that social media presents employers with new challenges. As the use of social media continues to expand, employers need to continually evaluate their policies and stay up to speed on the legal issues that arise.
Please join us on February 1, 2011, as Mayer Brown partners John Nadolenco and Andrew Rosenman discuss a number of the legal issues that employers need to consider when dealing with social media, including:
- Competing interests of employees and employers regarding the use of social media
- Issues that arise before, during and after employment as a result of social media
- Emerging legal issues and recent court decisions addressing social media and how they impact your workplace
- Suggested “best practices” and considerations for employers to follow
