About this item

This book is intended as a handbook for advisers to employers, providing an overview of the various UK legal issues that can arise in the workplace through the use and application of social media. The book explains the application of the law to the use of social media in the workplace, providing employers and their advisers with guidance to their IT and social media policies. It focuses on the preventative steps that can be taken by employers to safeguard themselves and their employees from risk. Such risks include: employee behavior via social media that could give rise to disciplinary or dismissal procedures or which might impact on other employees; the need to safeguard data and the extent to which employers are able to monitor social media usage by their employees; and the risks that social media poses in respect of other claims, such as pursuant to the UK's Protection from Harassment Act 1997. Topics covered include: the framework surrounding the most common issues arising out of social media in the workplace * the use of social media in recruitment of prospective employees * ongoing monitoring of existing employees and disciplinary and dismissal procedures * third party harassment * intellectual property and defamation and reputational damage * practical guidance in the form of model policies and flowcharts.
