Employees Online: How To Manage & Regulate Social Media At Work
|Date / Time:
Today's brave new world of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, Google and texting has led to a scary new world for your organization. Social media, email and the Web are creating shocking new legal risks for U.S. employers:
- An employee is fired for posting risqué pictures of herself. She sues. Was that free speech?
- An IBM employee loses her disability benefits because the company says her joyful Facebook photos show she no longer suffers from major depression. Is that legal?
- A job applicant is rejected after a Google search reveals a "brandishing weapons" conviction. Did HR act wisely – or expose the company to a potential lawsuit?
Where's the line between prudent monitoring and invasion of privacy? Are violent postings mere "venting" – or a warning of workplace danger? These are the problems that experts are debating … and that attorneys are litigating.
Learn about the new risks created by the Information Age – and the best strategies to avoid them – in an informative webinar: Employees Online.
This unique interactive event will provide you with definitive, practical answers to the challenges you're dealing with, including:
- The 5 reasons why you MUST put limits on employees' blogs, Tweets and other social-media posts
- When are employees' online postings considered free speech … and when are they libel? (A 5-question test will let you know)
- Developing a workplace social media policy
- How the National Labor Relations Board's new rulings are changing the rules in the virtual world.
- Can you fire workers if they post embarrassing (but true) details about your company?
- Internal AND external legal risks of social media
- The 6 steps to safeguarding your organization against today's online legal threats
In addition to providing an in-depth review of all these topics and more, Jon Hyman will also address all your questions in a comprehensive Q&A session. Imagine what it would cost you to ask a lawyer these questions in his office!
And because this is a webinar, there is no limit to the number of attendees you can invite to sit in, including your HR team … top management … in-house AND outside counsel … and employees at one location.
You owe it to your employees to provide a safe workplace, and to protect their rights to free speech and free expression. But you've also got to protect your company's reputation and trade secrets. Employees Online provides detailed advice on how to do both – effectively and legally.

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
