Australia: Madgwicks special offer - Social Media Review
Last Updated: 10 December 2011

The exponential take-up of social media as a communication medium provides a new channel for organisations to connect with their clients and community. It also creates a whole new set of risks that organisations may not have considered in the context of their staff training, human resources policies and contractual arrangements with employees.

The risk of information that could harm an organisation's business, being widely spread through social media channels, is low. However if these events occur, the damage inflicted to an organisation's reputation can be devastating.

While it is impossible to eliminate, businesses can be proactive in mitigating this risk. Madgwicks is pleased to offer a Social Media Review to assist your business to mitigate this risk.

The review will be provided by lawyers from the Madgwicks' Workplace Relations and Employment team with support from the wider legal resources of Madgwicks Lawyers. The review will include:

  • the development of a dedicated social media policy or the amendment of an existing internet use policy tailored to the needs of your organisation;
  • advice on how to ensure the effective regular communication of the policy to staff;
  • the development of a tailored training presentation to facilitate the training of all your staff in the appropriate use of Social Media and their responsibilities under the policy; and
  • a review of employment contracts and other relevant contracts and policies to ensure these are aligned with the new or updated social media and IT policies.

Madgwicks is pleased to offer this service at a fixed fee of $750 (including GST) for businesses of less than 15 people and $2,200 (including GST) for larger organisations.
