Social Media Law

Description:  The landscape of Social Media is an everchanging issue for Business Owners in how to manage the company reputation online balanced with how to control employees when they spend time online.  Part of that is understanding the laws related to social media usage by others and employees whether they are on company time or their own personal time.  Since employers may be held responsible for what their employees say online regarding competitors or others, than employers should be informed in knowing what you can restrict when it comes to employees because overreaching social media policies are not allowed under new laws.  Join Trisha Barita & Carol Keough, employment law attorneys with Barita & Keough Law Firm, PLLC, as they take you through the policies and practices of business owners and social media law and steps to protect themselves.
