Employers are in an uncharted area with the continuing evolution of social media, its increased use in the workplace for personal as well as work purposes and with attempting to figure out how to handle what had previously been simply perceived as misconduct. Moreover, what is considered work time or how far the reach of an organization may legally stretch into employees' zones of privacy is morphing into something that is as of yet not fully defined. While social media use continues to expand, there are ways in which an employer may carefully navigate the investigatory and disciplinary landscape and successfully support and manage its workforce, while simultaneously navigating around the potential legal missteps. In this episode HR expert Jenni Stone shares the steps to evaluate specific situations.
