It’s surprisingly easy to make Twitter errors and as these can hinder you when using Twitter for hiring, here are 7 of the easiest to avoid.

1. Reacting

Behind the anonymity that Twitter can afford, some people can be very rude. Arguing for the sake of arguing. Disagreeing spitefully. Personally attacking. Even bullying.

Avoid reacting.

You know all that stuff you read on the internet about employees who can badmouth their boss on the internet, all in the name of free speech, and not get fired for it....

Earlier this week, I wrote about the issue of threats made via Facebook constitute constitutionally protected speech.  Today’s post also is about threats made via Facebook but in the context of the workplace.  The case, decided by the Court of Appeals of Ohio, is timed perfectly for my road trip tomorrow to Ohio.

Social media use continues to increase exponentially.  This increase has been accompanied by the increased interest in regulation of social media influenced employment decisions by the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”).  Social media posts frequently reach thousands of people.  Employers are concerned, and rightfully so.

We’re getting closer and closer to another election season.  Even though this is a “light” year for elections locally, that doesn’t stop the candidates who are running for office from filling the airwaves with commercials. And, true to form, there are few candidates who say what they’re going to do.  Instead, they spend millions of dollars to smear their opponent.  People must feel it works because it gets worse the closer you are to the actual election day.

Electronic discovery, the collection and production of electronic documents in litigation, is a scary thing to many lawyers. Some are so scared by it, in fact, that they just deny that it exists and continue to produce only hard-copy documents. Of course, that is a terrible idea. And not at all in compliance with the rules of procedure. But, alas, it is what it is.

Breaches of confidentiality via Facebook and other social media are more common than most of us would like to think.  Employees post information about customers, clients, and patients on Facebook, in violation of internal company policies and privacy laws, such as HIPAA, for example.  I recently wrote about a plaintiff who could not collect a sizeable settlement payment because his daughter posted about the settlement on Facebook, which s

We often hear that our supervisors are our eyes and ears in helping to ensure legal compliance and minimize risk.  This is true when it comes to social media, but only if supervisors receive training on what to do and what not to do.  The do’s and don’ts of social media are not always intuitive. Here are ten of the more common mistakes that supervisors make in the absence of adequate training:

Social media policies vary around the world, but they tend to have a few things in common: Most permit some form of monitoring what employees do on social media sites and balance business interests against an employee’s right to privacy. Some also include data protection considerations.

This is according to a new study, Social Media in the Workplace Around the World 3.0, by international labor and employment law firm Proskauer.

My first SHRM conference was in March 2010, and it was not the big “Annual” affair that I am currently attending. It was the SHRM Legal and Legislative Conference in Washington, DC, designed for lawyers and senior HR pros who have a responsibility for legal compliance in their organizations.

Many professionals I know don’t have much patience for Twitter talk.  I try to explain the benefits of Twitter, but looking up their nostrils for an extended period of time is not easy. 

But the truth is I once had the same lack of interest in social media in general and Twitter in particular. I remember thinking only twits tweet…. until a personal accident changed my view.

Back in January of 2011, I fell on some ice and shattered my ankle in multiple places.  I needed emergency surgery.  The next week was my 30th birthday.  Would you believe 40th?  Okay, 50th.

The plaintiff is a Michigan lawyer.  She was placed on the assignment list of the County Probate Court and, as a result, received several case assignments.  She made a comment on Facebook about what she believed to be inefficiency at the Clerk’s Office at the Court in a particular case she was handling. She tagged two people in the post, mistakenly identifying them as employees at the Clerk’s Office.
