It seems nearly every week popular media reports cases of situations where public employees post a social media comment first and think about those impacts only after the genie is out of the bottle.
In this webinar, we are going to start first a basic review of supreme court cases involving the First Amendment rights of public employees balanced against the ability of an employer to impose discipline for the content and method of communications.
Based on that foundation, we will then explore the particular application to social media using some recent cases as examples of protected and not protected speech. This webinar should help employers, employees and their attorneys navigate this ever-changing area of law.
