HR Pros: Are You Concerned About Social Media?
Social media in the workplace raises a lot of questions about policies, privacy and confidentiality. The Proactive Employer will be presenting a special round table discussion where experts answer all of your HR and social media questions.
Like it or not, social media is something employers have to deal with. But it raises a lot of questions – should we have a formal policy? What should it say? Are there privacy concerns? How to we ensure that our trade secrets stay secret? What if we’re involved in litigation – what’s discoverable and what’s not? It seems like the questions are never-ending.
The Proactive Employer Podcast, sponsored by Thomas Econometrics, is presenting a special two-part round table discussion where experts answer all of your HR and social media questions. We've lined up an all-star panel of labor and employment lawyers, bloggers and social media adopters who will be sharing their expertise on various aspects of social media and human resources.
Jonathan Hyman, of Kohrman Jackson and Krantz, will be providing suggestions on how to implement and enforce an effective and workable social media policy. Seth Borden, of McKenna Long & Aldridge, will be discussing social media, labor law, and the flood of NLRB complaints we're seen recently. Molly DiBianca, of Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, will provide insight into social media and privacy concerns. Eric Meyer, of Dilworth Paxson, will be discussing social media, discovery and litigation. Philip Miles, of McQuaide Blasko, will talk about the nuts and bolts of social media from an HR perspective. Rob Radcliff, of Langley Weinstein, will provide guidance on social media, confidentiality, non-competition agreements, and trade secrets. Daniel Schwartz, of Pullman & Comley, will be discussing social media, recruiting and hiring, and employee engagement.
The two-part round table discussion will air on July 22, 2011 and July 29, 2011 and will be available for on-demand listening at The Proactive Employer website at http://www.theproactiveemployer.com or via iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/
