How is the use of mobile devices and social media impacting the business community?
The prevalence of mobile devices and the increasing use of social media bring both benefits and risks to the employer-employee relationship. With the constant evolution of technology and the active legal landscape, it can be hard to manage the issues in your workplace and keep your organization protected.
Can you discipline employees based on something posted on their personal social media site? Do you need permission to post pictures of your employees? What types of policies should you have in place related to social media and mobile device usage? What laws protect employees related to these topics? What happens when employees use mobile devices to respond to work emails after-hours, does this time need to be tracked and compensated? What should a mobile device agreement include?
