In our everyday lives, we’ve all noticed or become a part of the phenomenon of social media Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, MySpace and more. The options offered and growth of the media have been staggering. With that growth has come new legal risks, including employment issues, quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. And with things happening at lightning speed, it’s hard to keep up, much less react when something goes awry.
In October 2009, we published a White Paper on social media and United States law entitled Network Interference: A Legal Guide to the Commercial Risks and Rewards of the Social Media Phenomenon. The response was unlike quite anything we’d ever seen before as clients, friends, and colleagues from around the globe asked for copies and praised the work.
This month, we’ve published the second edition which includes a chapter on Employment Practices that addresses employment issues arising from the use of social media in both the U.S. and Europe.
