HR Happy Hour - Episode 52 - 'I Fought the Law' Thursday, July 1, 2010 - 8PM EDT So now everyone, your dad, your kids, your grandma, and your employees are happily tweeting, friending, liking, and sharing information on public social networks like Facebook and Twitter. In the corporate world, reactions to this phenomenon have varied from outright bans on one extreme, to fundamental embrace of the tools on the other extreme. And no matter what position your organization stakes out along the continuum, risks, opportunities, and choices abound. How much transparency and openness is too much? What kinds of risks are there for organizations in policy making and in enforcement? Are there particular elements of employment law and organizational exposure that need to be considered? It is naive to propose outright bans on these tools, as it is equally naive to promote unfettered and unmonitored access and usage in the workplace. This week we will be joined by Eric Meyer, Paul Smith, and Joan Ginsberg, all HR and/or legal experts, to talk about these and other issues. Please join us! Even LinkedIn
