More than ever before we live and work digitally, and so our online private and work activities intersect in constant and unforeseen ways. This session will discuss workplace management, compliance and disciplinary considerations for this digital age.  During this session we will explore:


  • Employee online activities and whether discipline is appropriate/available as a response
  • Workplace cyber-bullying and harassment
  • Employees’ “expectation of (electronic) privacy”
  • How to effectively utilize social media and electronic device policies
