Social media can be a powerful tool for marketing and client or customer engagement for a business but it can also be extremely damaging when used incorrectly or maliciously. 

When it comes to social media in the workplace, there are two main risks to keep in mind: 

(1) Employees publishing social media posts (either in or out of work hours) that could damage your business’s reputation; and

(2) Employees using social media during working hours, causing a down-turn in their work or posing health and safety risks

Our employment law experts work with businesses to ensure social media policies are put in place to help minimise the risk. We can do this by drafting a policy tailored to your business and also by dealing with investigations and disciplinary issues concerning the mis-use of social media by employees.
