Free Business Workshop: Social Media Employment Law Briefing

Date:  Thursday December 1st 2016
Time:  10.00am - 1.00pm
Venue:  Dunston Innovation Centre, Chesterfield S41 8NG

The massive growth in social media offers forward thinking businesses with marketing, recruitment and employee engagement opportunities. However, it has also presented employers with challenges to deal with including misconduct, breaches of discrimination law, harassment, confidentiality, a loss of productivity and damage to your reputation.

Please join us for a free Employment Law and HR briefing on how you can protect your business against an employee’s use of social media and avoid making the wrong decision which could result in a costly Employment Tribunal claim.

The workshop will be presented by Kelly Pashley-Handford, HR Manager and Philip McCabe, Solicitor and Head of Employment Law.
