The use and misuse of social media. Managing the impact of difficult behaviour

13 June 2022

This webinar took place on 9 June 2022 and is now available on-demand.

From Whatsapp, Twitter and SnapChat, to TikTok, Instagram and Facebook (and many more) social media is now an integral part of our communication systems, used both personally and professionally.

Following the exponential rise of platforms in the last 15 years, it’s not a surprise that we’re seeing more and more cases where employees have taken to social media to voice their concerns or frustrations in relation to their role, their employer or the people they work with.

But how, as an employer should you manage situations like this, and what tools are available in law to protect your people, customers, reputation and brand?

In this webinar, the second in our ‘Managing the impact of difficult behaviour’ series employment expert, James Tait and regulatory-specialist Ros Foster come together to discuss the use of social media and vexatious behaviour, and the tools that the law provides to help manage such situations.

This webinar is suitable for in-house lawyers, HR and employment professionals and people managers working in both commercial and public-sector organisations.
