Following on the success of our March webinar, “Labor Relations Update: Live,” Ronald Meisburg and Katharine Parker will be presenting a webinar on Wednesday, June 13th, entitled “Social Media in Perspective – Labor and Employment Law Developments.”  Ronald is a frequent author of this blog and the co-head of Proskauer’s Labor-Management Relations Group.  Katharine is a partner in the Labor and Employment Law Department at Proskauer and head of the Employment Law Counseling and Training Group.  Together, they will provide a multi-faceted approach to understanding the current state of the law as well as potential obstacles for employers. 

As most followers of this blog know, employee use of social media continues to present challenges for employers in and out of the workplace.  To help you keep up with the latest developments in this evolving area of the law, the webinar will focus on the key legal and practical issues:

The analysis employed by the NLRB in evaluating policies and their application

  • Red flags in policies and rules that invite NLRB scrutiny
  • Other legal considerations when regulating employee social media use including protection of proprietary information, compliance with FTC and industry-specific rules, employee privacy and monitoring of employee use
  • Suggestions for updating social media policies in light of developing law
