Description
Employers using social media for recruiting and hiring decisions need to be aware of the many employment and labor laws that impact these seemingly routine actions. As use of social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn continues to grow, employers routinely face challenges with balancing the types of information that they can and cannot consider when hiring. Additionally, employers need to know their potential employees rights to privacy and their rights to engage in protected, concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act.

Join Christina as she discusses the pit falls of social media when recruiting and how to lawfully use social media when recruiting and hiring. Stay current on the ever-changing employment and labor laws that impact an employer's ability to use social media or other internet sites as the basis for employment-related decisions.
