There’s an interesting article from the Social Media Law Student blog titled “The First Law School Seminar Paper on Twitter: Twitter and Employment Law Issues.”
It’s actually a seminar paper authored by Vincent Pascual on potential Employment Law issues that employers and employees may face with regards to what users post online.
Some Of The Areas Covered:
- Pitfalls as Related to Employment Law
- Use of tweets in hiring/firing
- Fake Profiles: The Potential for Identity Theft and/or Defamation
- What should employees do at this point?
“Without much case law to guide people one way or another, employees and job applicants should be highly vigilant about what they post and think twice before they post something. Tweeting should be treated as publishing a story to the front page of a newspaper or website for everyone to see.”
