Can You Be Sued or Fired for Social Media Involvement?

social-media-responsibilityI’ve never actually thought about this, but one of my clients is a well-known attorney in the southeast region of the US who has agreed to do a free webinar on Tuesday, Oct 5 at 3pm on the subject.  Of course, you can’t be fired if you’re the boss…but what if you have employees who are using social media in the name of your company?

I have never seen this subject addressed, and I’m looking forward to learning and getting up to speed on some of the responsibilities of using social media for business, whether I have employees or not.

I invite you to put this on your calendars and join us on Tuesday.  There is no cost, but is a gift to my social media community.  Here is part of a press release about the webinar:

Because of the popularity of internet sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and LinkedIn, employee blogging, tweeting, and friending has become an everyday occurrence. Online social networking sites and blogs can be used for many purposes, including communication with friends and business colleagues, marketing, uploading photos and videos, among other activities. Unfortunately for employers, as this technology continues to progress, develop, and grow, so do related employment law issues.  Join Molly Cherry as she discusses some of the benefits and legal pitfalls behind the use of social networking in the workplace, using real world examples and making some practical suggestions for employers.

Molly Cherry is a member at Nexsen Pruet, LLC, where she practices general business litigation and employment and labor law.  She is a Certified Specialist in Employment and Labor Law by the South Carolina Supreme Court and has been named for four consecutive years in the list of Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers® in South Carolina.  Ms. Cherry serves on the Board of Directors for the South Carolina Women Lawyers’ Association, the Trident Literacy Association, and the Tri-County Human Resources Management Association.
