Dickinson Wright to host Sunrise Seminar on Social Media in the Workplace

June 9, 2014
Join Dickinson Wright Attorneys William Thacker and Aimee Gibbs for “#ThinkBeforeYouTweet: The Legal Implications of Social Media in the Workplace” on Thursday, June 26, 2014 at Automation Alley in Troy, Mich.

Social media is firmly entrenched in modern culture and business, and has proven to be a compelling attraction to employers. While social media offers benefits, it also presents significant risks to employers and their employees. Laws surrounding social media in the workplace are quickly developing, and employers who ignore these developments do so at their peril.

This breakfast seminar will cover topics including: legal claims resulting from information obtained from social media, invasion of privacy claims, the National Labor Relations Board’s position regarding social media and protected concerted activity, and much more. Below are the event details:
