The Perils and Pitfalls of Social Media


In a recent survey of leading business executives, 79% of companies worldwide claim to actively use social media.

However, of these companies, only 12% believe they are doing so effectively. Many are unwittingly exposing their businesses to claims by not managing such use by their employees.

The growth in use of social media over the past decade has created a number of challenges for businesses, not least issues relating to the protection of confidential information, to the maintenance of reputation and to the damage which can be caused to working relationships.

This employment law seminar will comment on these challenges and update delegates on evolving case law decisions involving the use, or misuse, of social media and crucially how to protective measures in place for your business.
