Are you looking toward the future?

This week the US Supreme Court handed down it’s ruling in Ontario v. Quon which stated that employees have no expectation of privacy for computer use of employer owned equipment. It would be prudent for every Human Resource Manager to undertake one of two actions fairly promptly:
Option 1: Review your current social media policy to ensure that your employees understand that what they post in regards to your organization is fully available for you to review and take action on.

Option 2: Create a social media policy and disseminate to your entire staff. If you are creating a policy insure that you lay out specific guidelines on what employees can and cannot do when posting on social media sites. This should include the caveat that at no time without prior permission should employees create any perception that they represent your organization.
