"The use of technology and social media has become ubiquitous in virtually every aspect of everyday life – including the workplace – and this has resulted in a number of challenges. As author Rosemary Bocska points out in the introduction to her latest publication, Social Media and Privacy Law for Employers – Hiring, Firing and Managing Reputation, "The boundaries between employees' professional and personal lives is blurred, and from the employer's perspective, this gives rise to significant new legal issues relating to employee productivity, privacy and the employer's ability or right to discipline employees and monitor their conduct both on- and off-duty." In this insightful handbook, Bocska examines these issues in the context of every phase of the employer-employee relationship – from interviewing and hiring, to employment, to termination. Social Media and Privacy Law for Employers – Hiring, Firing and Managing Reputation is a practical resource for small businesses, managers, legal advisors and human resources professionals who are looking for guidance in dealing with the most common employment law issues relating to social media and privacy law in the modern workplace. In addition to general guidelines for hiring and firing, the book discusses hot topics in the area, such as privacy and the use of technology in the employment context. This volume offers a valuable overview of this new and complex space where both employers and employees have a social media presence – complete with a range of rights and responsibilities. Bocska reviews the most important aspects of this evolving area and includes commentary and analysis of the privacy and social media issues employers frequently face, including employee productivity, privacy and their ability to scrutinize employees' online activity. By addressing these concerns at the various stages of the employment relationship, this book helps define the boundaries between the personal and professional spheres of life. Social Media and Privacy Law for Employers – Hiring, Firing and Managing Reputation features useful information and guidance, including: Templates for policies that can be implemented in the workplace; Checklists and sample precedents to help businesses navigate complex privacy laws; Pragmatic charts and diagrams for ease of reference."--Publisher's website.
