Social Media & The Law
Morrish Solicitors, Wednesday 18th October 2017, 12.30pm to 4pm. A thoroughly ‘not-safe-for-work’ training session on how the online world affects the workplace! Has social media changed the legal approach to workplace rights? This seminar is designed to provide an up-to-date examination of just how employment law and social media interact. This is a minefield area for union reps and many workers have been sacked or disciplined for what employers may see as inappropriate comments on private Facebook or other social media accounts. Paul Scholey one of the foremost experts in this area of law will lead this day school in Leeds. The school is appropriate for all levels of knowledge on the issue and no specialist legal understanding is required, it is aimed at all those interested in the subject and who may have to deal with it in representing members either as a lay or full time official. Paul Scholey will cover dismissal related to online postings, discrimination, rights to privacy, confidentiality and reputational damage – and more.
