Social Concerns?

Issued: February 01 2012

The proliferation of the use of technology and social media in the workplace raises concerns for employers, including the impact that the use of technology and the access to social media has on productivity as well as the potential that negative comments made by employees will be made public. Even where employee actions are not made public – the internal circulation of offensive material by email, for example – the potential for internal disruption and, in some jurisdictions, the possibility of legal liability continues to exist for an employer. Norton Rose colleagues Katrin Scheicht, Karen Ainslie, Laure Joncour, Leanne Nickels, Natalie Caton, Claire Darbourne and Madeleine Loewenberg explore the issues.
