United States: WilmerHale Cybersecurity, Privacy And Communications Webinar Series: Regulation Of Social Media In The Workplace
Last Updated: February 26 2016

Join WilmerHale for the next session of the 2016 Cybersecurity, Privacy and Communications Webinar Series, where WilmerHale Partners Jonathan Cedarbaum, Barry Hurewitz and Laura Schneider and Associate Kevin Yurkerwich, PhD will discuss the regulation of social media in the workplace.

LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms provide employers with an abundance of informal information regarding employees and job applicants. More than 20 states have passed legislation limiting employer access and activity related to the social media accounts of job applicants and current employees. Unchecked review of information drawn from social media may expose employers to legal liability.

This panel will discuss:

  • the permissible and impermissible uses of social media by employers relating to employee recruitment and with regard to current employees;
  • possible approaches to controlling these risks and suggestions for how to draft, update and implement corporate social media policies; and
  • how issues under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act have arisen, and best practices for safeguarding employer interests without violating applicable law.

During the program, participants will have the opportunity to contribute questions online.

We hope you can join us.
