Off Duty Conduct - What Rights do Employers Have? 

6 Steps you can take to determine and manage your approach to social media. 

 
Social injustice, a pandemic, an impending election – it’s enough to make any employe act out and potentially post inflammatory comments. It’s important to know what rights you, and your employees have in relation to off duty conduct. 
 
The following simple steps are ways you can manage your approach to social media:  
  • Remind employees of the company’s core values
  • Periodically publish company policies such as mission or diversity & inclusion statements, codes of conduct, etc.
  • Review and revise your social media policy
  • Include your policies in training
  • Transparency
  • Establish guidelines for how to respond to complaints on company social media platforms and complaints about employee posts. 
Above all – make sure your team is well versed on the laws in your state, and keep treatment consistent.
