Litigating in the Age of Social Media Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the rest of the new social networking media have not only revolutionized the ways employees communicate with each other, both on and off the job, but have raised a host of new problems for employers. Not surprisingly, social media is also changing the face of litigation, something with which employers must increasingly learn to cope.

Please join us for a fast-paced hour-long webinar that talks about the problems and challenges social media pose in employment litigations and how employers can best deal with them. This is not just another social media program – but a program focused on what employers need to be doing now to prepare for the unique problems social media pose in employment litigations, including:

  • The latest case law regarding social media
  • Suggested employment policies regarding social media
  • Social media in discovery or e-discovery in employment law litigation with suggested language for discovery requests
  • Using (or not using) social media and or Web-based searches in hiring and the potential issues this type of search raises
