The newest way to get sued: social media at work

April 28, 2011 at 7:16 pm Leave a comment

Social media in the workplace offers exciting ways to communicate with colleagues and customers. But it also opens employers up to more legal landmines. John Holmquist, a Michigan-based attorney, says that mixing social media and work will lead to state and federal legislation. In a recent blog post, he writes that some employers are even requiring that job candidates provide their social media site logins and passwords so hiring managers can review their online activity. 

John will share more of his wisdom on social media legal landmines on May 19 during an audioconference “The Newest Way to Get Sued: Social Media at Work.” Join us for the conversation.
