Kelly McCarthy presents a webinar on “Social Media in California” via the Employer Resource Institute


Social media like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter can be a great way to get employees involved with building your organization’s online presence. But, the best of intentions can backfire when employees misuse social-networking tools by making inaccurate, inappropriate, or downright false statements that reflect poorly on your organization. Gain insight on HR’s role in helping to protect the organization’s reputation, its trade secrets, and its intellectual property. Get an overview of the legal parameters for monitoring employees’ online conduct and come away with practical pointers on how to put a stop behavior that creates risks related to your organization’s reputation, proprietary data, and more.
