KEYNOTE TOPIC 1:
To Snoop on Employees' Social Media or Not to Snoop: Reconciling Employers' Monitoring Rights with Employees' Privacy Expectations
Social media offer a window into how employees live their lives and conduct their personal and professional business. Should employers gaze into that window to uncover what employees are up to when they are off the clock? Employee privacy in the digital age is one of most challenging issues facing employers today.
Employers who opt to exercise their right to monitor have plenty of company: 39% of companies review job applicants' social media posts, and 43% have rejected a candidate for posting racy photos, bad-mouthing a former boss, or otherwise posting inappropriate content, according to a CareerBuilder survey. Increasingly, organizations ask current and prospective employees to turn over their private user names and passwords to personal Facebook accounts. Over 65% of employers have fired workers for inappropriate online content, including tone-deaf tweets, pornographic posts, and Facebook rants that violate regulatory rules and the law, reveals American Management Association/ePolicy Institute research.
On the other side of the debate, employees nationwide are gaining legislative support in their quest to maintain online privacy. To date, 17 states have passed laws making it illegal for bosses to demand login information for employees' Facebook, email, and other personal online accounts. An additional 20 states are considering similar legislation.
Nancy Flynn-ePolicy Institute founder and author of books including The Social Media Handbook, The ePolicy Toolkit, and Blog Rules-discusses the challenges of balancing privacy expectations with monitoring rights. She delivers best practice-based guidelines for employers and practical advice for employees operating in a world in which the law is struggling to keep pace with technology.
