Social Media Posts and Employment Law: Employee Rights and Disciplinary Policy Options for Employers


CLE credits earned: 1 General Credit (WA 1 Law and Legal)

Join us for an informative program on what employers need to know about social media, employee rights and disciplinary policy options. Attendees will learn whether some posts are protected and the authority governing these circumstances. We will also be reviewing the circumstances under which employees can be disciplined by employers for their posts. Finally, we will discuss the rights employees have to express opinions on social media but that doesn’t mean they can’t be disciplined for it.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
