Protect Your Business without Infringing on Your Employees’ Rights


Managing Social Media Risks at the Workplace. Like most employers, you don’t really want to know what your employees did last night. But you might find out on social media – by which time it may be too late, and the damage may have been done. Social media can be a public minefield for an employer. It’s a probable source for risks – such as brand/reputation damage, security and privacy, legal and regulatory compliance, and employee/HR issues. And while you may terminate an employee’s services, they could pursue claims such as discrimination, gender bias, infringement of First Amendment free speech rights, and so on. Regardless of your line of business, it’s important to know how you can avoid costly litigations and, at the very least, a bad name for your business.

Learn how to avoid legal risks associated with monitoring and disciplining employees for their social media use in this information-packed webinar with expert speaker Chris DeVany. DeVany will show you how to develop and implement effective social media policies, and will share the best practices for navigating employee privacy issues; employee conduct outside of work, and the use of social media as part of the hiring process.

Make no mistake: To function at maximum effectiveness, you must master critical communication skills – such as active listening, the ability to receive and provide constructive feedback, resolve conflicts, and coach and mentor your team. This webinar will show you how.

After attending this ‘Managing Social Media Risks at the Workplace’ webinar, you will be able to ascertain whether your social media policies are legally compliant. And if you don’t have a social media policy in place, this webinar will arm you with the right tools and knowledge to develop and implement policies that balance your needs as an employer and the rights of your employees at the same time. Plus, you’ll find yourself better equipped to handle and resolve conflicts at your workplace.
