Social Media: Compliance Strategies For HR
|Date / Time:
In today’s social media-driven environment, employers must pay close attention to protecting sensitive and confidential data while balancing employees’ rights to express their opinions through social media.
You might be surprised at just how broadly the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is interpreting employees’ rights regarding social media postings, even non-union employees. If you unlawfully step over the line, even with the best of intentions, you could find yourself in the middle of a costly dispute.

|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.
