New Year, New Changes in the Workplace: Technology/Social Media and Key EEOC Initiatives - What You Need to Know NOW

You see it every day - the immense influence and use of technology and social media in the workplace.  Now, more than ever, employers need to have policies and procedures in place that protect them in this ever-changing landscape: Who owns that Twitter or LinkedIn account? Is an employee allowed to complain on Facebook about his employer or supervisor?  From whom does an employee need to get permission before posting something on the Company's website? We will address these issues and also explore the EEOC's position on employers' use of criminal background checks and the potential discriminatory impact on candidates for employment, as well as other timely EEOC initiatives.  This program will cover, among other things:

  • Legal risks associated with employee use of technology
  • The influence of the National Labor Relations Act on the non-union workplace, including social media decisions
  • The EEOC's view on criminal background checks and other key EEOC initiatives
  • Quick Takes: New laws and timely updates as well as a refresher on key topics based upon your feedback from previous seminars
