One of the rights the Constitution guarantees is Freedom of Speech. However, that free speech can come with consequences. The emergence of Social Media coupled with technology such as camera phones has created an atmosphere where almost nothing is private anymore.  Personal opinions and activities that were once kept separate from the workplace are now becoming intertwined. Now employees are being disciplined and at times fired for activities or social media posts done outside of the workplace.   This seminar will discuss social media and its impact on freedom of speech in the workplace using current case law and case studies. The seminar will then discuss how to handle these issues by creating good personnel policies, effective employee discipline, and creating a code of conduct for your workplace.

9:00a.m.- 10:15a.m. -  Discussion of Social Media, current case law, case studies
