Employers and employees are increasingly relying upon electronic communication, including social media, in their personal and professional lives, using e-mail, blogging and social networking as primary forms of communication.
As a result of this broad and widespread use, employers must understand how companies and employees are using these new technologies in the workplace and the pitfalls that could result from such use.
In the workplace, electronic communication and social media issues are opening a host of new privacy concerns for employers. Social networks create a forum for employee disclosure of trade secrets or harassment and potentially create a distraction from work-related responsibilities.
