2017 BN360 Legal Briefs #1 – How NOT to Kill Your Career Through Social Media

How NOT to Kill Your Career Through Social Media

Did you know that as of this year, 81% of U.S. Americans have a social media profile? The number of worldwide social media users has reached 1.96 billion and is expected to grow to around 2.5 billion in 2018 according to statista.com. So sure, you’re bound to come across those folks that offer extremely credible political opinions, or maybe share one too many cat photos. But when do the things you post on your personal profiles start to impact your professional life?

Join us on December 7th where we’ll discuss the ins and outs of social media etiquette in this day and age, more specifically:

  • Pitfalls of “Friending” or “Following” Co-workers and Subordinates

  • Are your social media policies 9-5?

  • Employment Handbook Basics

  • Pros/Cons of including a social media policy in your handbook

  • Social media challenges for employers

    • The tension between protecting the organization versus restricting an employee’s off-duty use of social media

    • Where is the “line” between employee rights and an employer’s right to expect employees not to publicly act out inappropriately?

Guest speakers: Brendan Kelleher and Marnie Smith from Harris Beach
