Masterclass on the use of Social Media in the Workplace

Wednesday 15th May 2019
8.00am to 12.00pm 
University Centre

The event is aimed at business owners, HR professionals, CIPD students and Senior Managers who are critical in a business' HR processes and who may be involved in ensuring and enforcing compliance with disciplinary rules involving the misuse of social media.  

The Forbes Employment Team will provide guidance on the use of social media in the workplace. They will explore the issues, rules and guidelines for employers to ensure an effective social media policy is implemented and enforced in your businesses. Emma Swan, Employment Partner at Forbes, comments, “In virtually every situation that our team is asked to advise on there is an element of social media being involved. Whether that is an inappropriate posting leading to disciplinary action, direct messaging being used to bully colleagues or a team member feeling isolated because they are not invited to join a work ‘group’. Social media content often provides crucial evidence in Employment Tribunal cases. Employers need to understand how they can protect their businesses whilst embracing the benefits to them of their employees use of social media.”
