Description
Using social media as part of recruiting has become the norm. A recent survey indicates that, more than ever, companies are using social media to recruit top talent:

92% use or plan to use social recruiting
43% of recruiters who use social recruiting saw an increase in candidate quality
73% have successfully hired a candidate through social
31% of recruiters using social have seen a sustained increase in employee referrals

Why is social media recruiting so popular? One reason is the amount of information that recuiters and business can learn online about job candidates. When used properly, this information can be key in finding the right person for the job. However, if certain protected-class information (e.g., race, religion, pregnancy, genetic information, etc.) obtained online is used in an employment decision, you'll need a good employment lawyer.

To further save yourself some legal bills, it is also more important than ever to be in tune with the legal ramifications making a termination decision based on employee use of social media. And with natural attrition, the viral nature of social media also exposes your business to the risk of unfair competition from former employees and their subsequent employers.

In this session, you will learn you will learn:

- What's legal and what's not, when it comes to using social media to source and hire job candidates
- The do's and don'ts of disciplining employees based on their use of social media
- Best practices for how to protect your business when employees leave.
