The use of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc., is increasing exponentially every day. Workers can use social media to criticize their employers, supervisors and co-workers and even for harassment. Such use can ruin a company’s reputation and expose it to liability for permitting workplace harassment. So it’s important for your company to have a social media policy.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Adapt this Model Social Media Policy for use in your company, give it to all workers and explain to them what it means. In addition, have workers sign off on the policy, acknowledging receipt of it.
