Jun 2 Privacy and Social Media in the Workplace Webinar Archive 876x254


Between Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and TikTok, social media is a daily habit for many people. Employers have taken notice and are increasingly using social media platforms to recruit, screen and hire employees. From a legal perspective, employers need to consider the privacy and human rights implications of relying on social media in the recruitment process.

Employers also need to put in place meaningful social media policies for employees. After numerous news stories about discipline or termination for off-duty social media use, employees are increasingly aware of the consequences their social media conduct can have in the workplace. How can employers create clear policies to educate and inform employees? What labour and employment law issues should employers be aware of concerning data, privacy and human rights?

  • Social Media as a Recruitment Tool
