Our latest employment law podcast is available here. In this podcast myself and Gordon White of Fatbuzz discuss some of the issues surrounding the use of social media in the workplace. As the use of social media becomes ever more popular it is essential that employers and employees alike are aware of the particular issues it raises in the context of the workplace. Employers should know how to manage the use of social media effectively and how to use it to their advantage.

The issues discussed include:-

  • Social media considerations for contractual and policy documents
  • Use of social media for recruitment
  • Ownership of social media contact lists
  • Reputational issues
  • Disciplinary/harassment issues
  • Privacy issues
