Employer’s Guide to Addressing Employee Social Media Use and Speech

Recent political and societal events have resulted in public safety employees increasingly taking to social media to express personal opinions, thoughts and emotions.  At the same time, public safety departments are under pressure to ensure employees are not expressing viewpoints that can violate policy, negatively impact operations, or bring discredit to an agency.  This 90-minute presentation will (1) explore the legal restrictions relating to monitoring and accessing an employee’s social media postings and (2) discuss the factors public safety agencies should consider in assessing whether an agency can, or should, take action in response to an employee’s social media post.  This presentation will offer up-to-the-minute information about the parameters of social media free speech during these turbulent times.   

Please note that one registration equals one connection to the webinar. Links cannot be shared.

Law enforcement and fire service Department Heads, Managers and Supervisors, and Human Resources Staff who assist public safety departments.
