Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Social networking has exploded over the past few years. MySpace, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and many others are becoming common household names. While some companies encourage their employees to use social networking sites to increase employees’ networking community, others find that employees may say too much on social networking platforms – like criticizing a supervisor, engaging in online bullying of a co-worker, discussing business plans on public forums, etc.

Can you or should you discipline? Courts and regulatory agencies are just beginning to address these important issues. On the other hand, can you use such sites for your own purposes like checking out an applicant’s profile to see if there are any discrepancies in the resume the applicant submitted to your company?
