    About the topic:

    This presentation will examine workplace issues concerning social media including use of social media in the hiring process and employee’s use of social media during work and off work. Employee’s use of social media to discuss workplace conditions is protected by labor law. Public sector employees have additional first amendment rights to engage in off-duty speech that may take place through social media. There are limitations to these protections, however, and ways that employers can address social media issues in the workplace, even if the speech is protected. We will evaluate specific case examples of these rights, advise employers on how to navigate this fine line of labor law, and how to address problems created by off-duty speech.
