Chances are your employees are sharing a photo with 1.94 billion active Facebook users or reposting an article alongside the 500 million LinkedIn members, perhaps they are madly tweeting their opinions on Twitter along with 317 million others.
While the power of social media is widely accepted, and in many cases harnessed by businesses, many employers have been reactive in addressing the potential risks posed by their employees’ social media interactions.
It’s the world we live in and it has certainly served up a number of challenges, in particular for HR practitioners. Do you know what your legal rights and obligations are when dealing with situations involving social media in the workplace?
Join us for our next Central Coast HR HUB Breakfast at the Point Café – East Gosford with our guest facilitator Kyle Scott (Senior Associate, Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors) as we tackle this topic.
Kyle will cover:
- HR challenges and legal risks arising from the social media phenomenon;
- Proactive steps employers can take to manage those risks;
- Sharing wisdom on our social media ‘war stories’;
- Legal rights and obligations of employers.
