Managing the Impact of Social Media in Employment Decisions

Presented by: Ogletree Deakins — Shareholder, Rachel Reingold Mandel

Social media has fundamentally shifted the way people communicate with one another. Twitter users send approximately 500 million tweets each day, and Facebook has more than 1.28 billion monthly active users worldwide. Given the sheer number of people using social media, employers need to know how to deal with their employees’ use of it. For example, what recourse, if any, do you have if an employee posts negative comments about your company on Twitter? This session, presented by an employment attorney at one of the largest employment law firms in the United States, will focus on the impact and management of social media in various employment decisions, including employee hiring and firing, and employee use both on and off work time and during employment investigations.
