Did you know that most social media activity occurs midweek between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m? How employers should handle employees’ use of social media in and outside of the workplace has always been tricky. Now it’s even more complicated due to the social unrest resulting from the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. This course will cover the basic dos and don’ts of social media use as it relates to the workplace, using specific examples. Confidentiality, monitoring, social media and bring your own device policies, and how they need to interact with nondiscrimination and anti-harassment policies, also will be discussed. Practice tips will be provided.
