As business technologies proliferate, the boundaries of the "workplace" have been blurred.  Social networking services and websites that allow the creation of user-generated content—also known as "Web 2.0"—enable ever-greater online interaction between employers, employees, job applicants and others.  

So what does this mean for employers? It means that your compliance obligations have expanded into the virtual world. While social media offers distinct benefits to businesses, employers must face the legal, practical and public relations challenges posed by Web 2.0 activity in the workplace and develop a strategy for addressing them. 

Please join Devjani Mishra for a 90-minute webinar on:

  • An overview of social media and Web 2.0
  • Risks associated with employees' use of Web 2.0
  • Legal and other considerations for regulating Web 2.0 activity
  • Tips for implementing an effective social media policy
  • Best practices on the use of social media to attract and screen applicants
  • Special considerations related to employer-sponsored social media
