Social networking sites and blogs are fast becoming both a distraction and enigma to the workplace. They also present significant legal challenges and concerns with hiring and discipline.

Are you prepared to act on issues surrounding the monitoring and use of these new technologies? Join us for this timely educational program and come away with a better handle on issues such as -- ** Key points to drafting online social network & blogging policies; ** Monitoring employee use of social networks; ** What is a "reasonable" expectation of privacy in the office; ** When can a person be terminated for misuse of company-owned technology?; ** What should you know before using a social site for recruiting purposes.
