Social Media in the Workplace FREE Employment Law Briefing

2015-06-24 Philip posted:

We are teaming up again with Trowbridge based White Horse Employment to deliver a free* Employment Law Briefing to help you deal with social media in the workplace.

The last year has seen an incredible growth in the number of workplace disputes due to the use and abuse of the internet, email and social media. Employment Tribunals and the High Court are now handing down judgments on claims for unfair dismissal, harassment and discrimination involving the misuse of social media.

Employers are right to be concerned about the impact on their business and need to understand what rights and responsibilities they have regarding the use of social media by their staff, and how to ensure they are not infringing rights of privacy by monitoring its use.

Employment law is one of the fastest developing areas of law where even a small mistake or a brief error of judgement can be costly. Keeping on top of ever changing legislation and best practice can be time consuming and challenging for any business.

If you are a business owner, HR Professional, Director or Manager who oversees employees, you will find this informal presentation of great benefit.
