Description
Social media use in recruitment is growing, with 48% of companies surveyed stating they already use or plan to use this tool. The issue is complex and the legislation is changing, making it vital for you to be up-to-date. Do you know your employees’ rights? Are you aware of your obligations when it comes to social media in recruitment?

In this webinar, XpertHR contributing author, Karen Michael will explore a variety of situations where you might want to consider using social media, from requiring passwords, to “shoulder surfing” to “friending” candidates and social media background checks.

Karen will detail the current legislation, as well as upcoming changes, helping you to ensure your organization is complying with the law. She will examine key issues that can arise from using social media as a recruitment tool, including how you can avoid discrimination and how you can help protect your company by implementing a social media policy.

Through the use of real-life case studies Karen will highlight common situations you are likely to be facing, with practical recommendations you can incorporate into you day-to-day activity. Plus she discusses the role a social media policy can play in protecting your organization from embarrassment, potential lawsuits or worse.

In just 60 minutes, this webinar will arm you with the key points you need to know about the legal issues involved with social media and hiring, including upcoming changes to the law. It will also help you recruit with confidence, while ensuring your organization is complying with the law.

"Another excellent presentation. Karen's knowledge of the subject matter was extremely beneficial in an area where there are lots of ""slippery slopes."" So much information was given and as you can see by the number of questions this is a topic for which you could do more or a 'Part 2' of this Webinar. Thank you for the quality presentations HR.com and the speakers provide." 5 / 5

I thought the presentation was helpful and informative. There were a few tweaks that should be done to the power point before being presented again. For example there was a pie chart with a 4th category but no listing that could be deleted there was a type o in the text (which Karen acknowledged) and the duplicate license plates. However overall the content of information was very good. 3 / 5
