Overview
I posted it on line can I be fired for that comment? Some employees depending in their position may have more rights than others as to what they post on line. Some employees based upon content may have more protection.
Despite the business pluses of these sites and tools, they also create issues of security and legal liability for employers, and still relatively little case law exists for organizations to turn to when weighing the risks. This webinar will help employers better understand the numerous laws that employers need to be concerned about when terminating employees for what they say or do on social media. And what you need to know before you terminate employees for comments they post on social media sites.
We will also see how the law views cyber activity vs offline activity. Do employers have duties to monitor their employees online presence, can employers be responsible for online activities of employees.
