    Speaker:  Jonathan Yarbrough, Managing Member at Constangy, Brooks & Smith LLP

    If Facebook were a country, it would be the fourth largest country in the world behind China, India and the United States. Employees are using social media not only to connect with their friends, but also to vent about frustrations in the workplace. Their rants can undermine your marketing campaigns, create workplace harassment issues and broadcast your secrets to the world. Even in "employment at will" states, there may be limitations on employer action, and the law has been slow to catch up with technological advances. What do you do? How far can you go? 

    Come learn more in an exciting and practical presentation by Jonathan Yarbrough, attorney/partner of Constangy, Brooks and Smith, LLP as he discusses: 

    Legal obligations of employers dealing with Social Media The key to effective Social Media policies The National Labor Relations Act and limitations on employer actions Protecting confidential information from disclosure in Social Media Harassment claims and Social Media and much more!
