Podcast: Key Social Media Issues Affecting the Workplace

Hosted by: David Weisenfeld

This XpertHR podcast features Providence, RI employment attorney Brian Lamoreaux, of Pannone, Lopes, Devereaux & West, discussing the most significant social media issues affecting employers today. In a wide-ranging conversation, Lamoreaux addresses a host of big risks and trends in this area. These include:

  • National Labor Relations Board enforcement efforts against employer social media policies that could chill the ability of employees to discuss their working conditions;
  • The increased use of social media as a recruiting tool;
  • New social media privacy protections for employees; and
  • The use of smart phones to record audio or video in the workplace.

Lamoreaux also touches on the dangers for employers if their social media policies do not keep up with changes in technology.
