Effectively Using Social Media While Limiting Legal Liability
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Vine - if you're not familiar with these terms, you're not only "behind the times", you're at risk of putting your organization at an operational disadvantage and exposing it to legal liability. Organizations have countless potential uses for social media - recruiting, applicant screening, marketing, sales, internal communications - but the use of social media brings with it significant legal risks - risks that employers must anticipate and pro-actively address. This presentation will discuss these emerging uses of technology, how and why social media may be a valuable tool when appropriately utilized, and how to reconcile the business uses of technology with employee relations concerns and associated legal risks.
