The Regulation of Social Media in the Workplace

  • 3.23.2016

Have you ever checked an employee’s or applicant’s LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter accounts? If so, did you know that throughout the last several years, more than 20 states have passed legislation limiting employer access and activity related to the social media accounts of job applicants and current employees? Unchecked review of information drawn from social media may expose employers to legal liability. A team of WilmerHale attorneys from our Cybersecurity, Privacy and Communications practice, along with attorneys from our Labor and Employment practice, recently discussed these issues and more during a webinar, “Regulation of Social Media in the Workplace.” If you missed it, you can view the webinar recording.
