Mecklenburg County Bar
General, Labor & Employment Law
Over the past decade, new technologies have raised concerns for employers over the impact of their employees’ social media postings on the workplace as well as their public images. Courts and federal agencies continue to struggle to apply existing legal concepts to these new methods of communication. This seminar will include explanations of:
Employers’ rights to monitor and restrict employee social media use
Public employers’ additional obligations under the First Amendment
Changing National Labor Relations Board restrictions on social media policies
Drafting effective and compliant social media policies
Promoting appropriate employee social media use
The views and opinions are not necessarily those of the 26th Judicial District Bar.
