Whether you’re an occasional Facebooker, a Twitter fanatic, or a well-known blogger, you need to understand the risks you face every time you post or click at work and at home. If you think what you post is private, or that you can click without consequences, think again. If you make a mistake with your social media, it can cost you your job. I did a guest blog post this week on MonsterThinking (Monster.com's excellent blog on employment and career issues) where I talk about six things you need to know about social media and employment law before you post or click.
Check it out here.
I've added MonsterThinking.com to my blogroll too. It's an excellent source of information for employees on the latest issues affecting you at work. Keep checking it out - I know I will.
Have a general question about employment law? Want to share a story? I welcome all comments and questions. I can't give legal advice here about specific situations but will be glad to discuss general issues and try to point you in the right direction. If you need legal advice, contact an employment lawyer in your state. Remember, anything you post here will be seen publicly, and I will comment publicly on it. It will not be confidential. Govern yourself accordingly. If you want to communicate with me confidentially as Donna Ballman, Florida lawyer rather than as Donna Ballman, blogger, my firm's website is here.
