Effective social media polices in the workplace are essential to improving productivity and keeping company information private. Current laws indicate that the employer can be held liable for an employee’s social media posts if the posts were made on the job from a company computer. This includes charges of defamation for false statements about a competitor, client, or even another coworker, as well as trade libel claims. Yet balance is key. Social media, in all of its unique and ever-changing forms, is a driving force behind increasing your customer base and maintaining a thriving, active network between employees and clients.
