If you haven’t already checked out the March issue of Arizona Attorney Magazine, you should definitely do so. It addresses the world of legal issues that can arise related to the internet. It is definitely a go-to source for attorneys and executives. My article, “The Social Media Checklist for Companies — What Your Clients Should Do, Know and Learn” appears on page 16 of the magazine, and breaks down the issues that come up in employment law.
One thing is clear: We live in the world where every trivial action can be monitored, replayed and shared. Every bad day is one click or snap away from the eyes and ears of viewers around the globe. Whether a company has one employee or thousands throughout the world, it should consider whether a social media policy needs to be implemented and used. In addition, companies need to understand the workplace issues that may arise as a result of their employees’ use of social media. It is imperative to be proactive and protect against issues relating to wage and hour disputes, discrimination claims, and employee privacy.
I was going to re-print the article here, but I realized that reading the digital issue on Arizona Attorney Magazine’s website is more visually exciting, as you can see the graphics and infoboxes. Also, I just found out that my blog apparently does not like endnotes. Who would’ve guessed. The thing is that I like endnotes, and want to give credit where credit is due. So read the whole article here – at Arizona Attorney Magazine.
I have a new 3-D social media presentation I am preparing that expands on the article. Email me if you want a sneak peek.
