Social media and employment law

What guidelines should you provide employees so that they can use social media in the workplace in a way that will let them benefit from it without exposing the organization to an undue level of risk? What are the risks for the employees? What are the risks and liabilities for employers? What are their rights?

Tudor Carsten is tackling these issues at the Managing Social Media conference being staged by the Canadian Institute in Toronto today. The title of  his presentation: The Facebook “Problem”: Developing Guidelines and Procedures for Dealing with Social Networking Sites in the Context of Employment Law.

I’ll be capturing the highlights of the session from the Twitter stream using the #CdnInst hashtag and posting them here using CoverItLive.
