    SHRM Competencies: Ethical Practices, Risk Management, U.S. Employment Laws & Regulations

    Presented by: Lindsay Smith Dischley, Esq. and Melissa A. Salimbene, Esq.

    Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and you and whatever other form of social media you can think of are presenting new challenges and opportunities in the workplace and for HR professionals everywhere. During the presentation, two attorneys will address recent developments in employment law involving social media usage and the tension between employee freedoms and employer rights and obligations. Specifically, they will provide guidance on the benefits of using social media, including using social media for recruiting potential employees, marketing, monitoring employees and networking and how to legally use social media for these purposes. They will also address the potential pitfalls of using social media in hiring, disciplining and terminating employees and how to avoid these pitfalls. Finally, they will discuss how companies can protect themselves from their employees' use of social media, including discussing the importance of implementing social media policies and training employees regarding those policies and other applicable state and federal laws.
