Recruitment, Social Media and The Law

Are you confident that your organisation’s use of Social Media for Recruitment purposes is legitimate?  What about your hiring managers – are they doing sneaky Facebook checks and exposing the company to potential discrimination claims?
Recent cases make it clear that an organisation’s ability to effectively regulate its workforce’s use of social media will depend centrally on whether it has appropriate written contracts, policies and procedures.
Delivered by Nick Duggal, an expert in Employment Law, this half-day workshop will provide you with practical tools for minimising your organisation’s social media exposure, while allowing you to harness its benefits in employment activities.
