Whose Right Is It? Legal Ramifications of Social Media in the Workplace

Do your workplace privacy policies cover employee monitoring and social media activity? Learn what you need to include to accommodate changing technology and the challenges facing multi-state employers. Workplace privacy compliance used to mean telling employees that they had no expectation of privacy in the office or on the company email system, keeping medical information separate and protecting social security numbers. No more. Obtaining, using and protecting information about employees has become a new form of information governance with its own patchwork of rules that is as complex in its own way as protection of customer data. This topic helps the persons responsible for developing and implementing policies that govern employee monitoring, social media activity, use of company and employee owned devices to assess their risks and develop policies that can accommodate changing technology and the challenges facing multi-state employers. Failure to have updated policies can leave employers at the mercy of archaic laws that never contemplated today’s workplace.
