Join us for Part 1 in a seminar series Doing Business In The Digital Age: Social Media in the Workplace. The seminar, presented by The HR Group, Inc. and Brooks Pierce will take place at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce (One Estell Lee Place, Wilmington).

Today, members of every generation rely on social media for everything from news to social interaction. Social media in the workplace presents employers not only with new opportunities, but also with challenges and concerns about legal compliance. This session, part of a 3-part series on “Doing Business in the Digital Age,” will explore how to effectively manage social media in the workplace, what privacy issues may exist, and how to maximize the benefits of social media in light of the risks. Specific areas that will be covered include:

Employer use of social media pre-employment (applicant screening), during employment, and post-employment.
Employee use of social media, both personal and for business.
Employee use of social media as protected activity under the NLRA.
Employer liability for employee use of social media.
Social media policies and guidelines.
Discoverability of social media data.
Privacy issues.

Attend this informative seminar and get linked into the latest guidance for employers on the use of social media in the workplace. Presented by Brian Spencer, SPHR, SCP of The HR Group, Inc. and Edwin L. West, III, J.D., of Brooks Pierce.
