    Topic:  Social Media In The Workplace: Legal Trends And Ethical Considerations


    and   LINDSAY SMITH DISCHLEY             Chiesa, Shahinian & Giantomasi, PC


    The exploding growth of social media has significantly changed the way people communicate and conduct business.  Not surprisingly, employees’ social media activities have significantly pushed the boundaries of lawful workplace behavior and created legal challenges for employers seeking to control this new form of communication and minimize their legal risks.  In addition, social media has benefits and can be a valuable tool for employers in marketing, recruiting and developing professional relationships.  This presentation will address recent developments in employment law involving social media usage and the tension between employee freedoms and employer rights and obligations.  The goals of this presentation are:

    ·         To educate employers as to the benefits of using social media, including using social media for recruiting potential employees, marketing, monitoring employees and networking 
    ·         To advise employers as to potential pitfalls of using social media in hiring, disciplining and terminating employees
    ·         To teach employers how to protect the company from its employees' use of social media, including discussing the importance of implementing social media policies and training employees regarding those policies and other applicable state and federal laws
