When Employees Attack: Responding to Negative Employee Comments on the Web

Make sure you know your rights and responsibilities when an employee criticizes the company or other employees on the web.

As social networking, via online tools such as MySpace®, Facebook®, and Twitter®, have exploded in popularity over the last few years, many employers have had to deal with inappropriate conduct by their employees on the web, including an employee's direct criticism of the company. According to one survey, at least half of all employers have had to discipline employees for inappropriate online conduct. It is crucial for you to understand their rights and obligations when dealing with employees who present such problems. This topic provides both the legal framework within which an employer already facing such issues can act as well as strategies for avoiding such problems to begin with. Receive best practice tips for anyone looking to develop a policy that regulates employee online conduct.
