Social media in the workplace

Social media in the workplace


This course is aimed at line managers and HR managers who want to know more about the law surrounding the use of social media in the workplace. It will help you identify and manage the risks associated with your employees’ use of social media.

We will examine social media issues throughout the employment relationship including recruitment, during employment and after employment has ended (looking at, for example, who owns your former employees’ contacts on LinkedIn).

The growth of social media use has blurred the line between an employee’s work and private life. We will discuss many of the most important cases that have been decided in this area, focussing on disciplinary action taken against employees using Facebook and Twitter.  We will also explore the extent to which you can monitor your employees’ emails and Internet use and go through what should be included in a social media policy to protect your business.

We will finish the training session with a short case study to help you apply the principles you have learnt.

Who should attend?

The ideal delegate for this course would be HR managers, directors and social media managers.
