Most people of working age have some kind of online presence. And the majority rarely miss a day of visiting a social media site — even while at work. This brings up a whole host of legal issues for employers. Some of the most critical issues include employer use of social media in internal investigations; whether employees’ use of social media can be restricted at work; discipline for usage off-duty when it’s related to their employment; employer liability for employee’s use of social media, including harassment, discrimination, and defamation; and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) security, compliance, and employee privacy concerns.

There are additional concerns for public employers, including issues related to an employee’s First Amendment rights; Fourth Amendment rights; and, for federal employees, compliance with the Hatch Act.
