REST BREAKS AND BATHROOMS

Recently, the California Supreme Court held that during an employee’s paid rest break, the employee must be relieved of all duty, including being on call. This makes the law of rest breaks more in line with the law of meal periods

THE UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES OF SOCIAL MEDIA: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE INTERESTING

PRESENTED BY:   MICHELLE WINKLEY, TALENT DISTINCTIONS, LLC and ROXANNE TORABIAN-BASHARDOUST, TORABIAN LAW

The power of social media is undeniable – it can build brands like Zappos and BuzzFeed, facilitate revolutions as we saw in Egypt, and connect us with our long-lost high school friends!  It is also becoming a vital employee engagement tool.  Social media provides a platform that allows your employees to share knowledge, collaborate, build community, and strengthen your company culture.  It facilitates ongoing education and provides a communications vehicle for employees to receive real-time updates.

 

Productivity concerns, harm to brand reputation, harassment claims, and breach of privacy may cause companies to hesitate in addressing the social media culture.  Don’t let this happen to you - social media can be a critical part of your HR and learning strategy, especially with the millennial workforce.  The time to get on board is now!

 

It is important to understand the implications of social media on our business and work with our leaders to embrace, not restrict, this technology.

Join us for an update on the current legal and workplace landscape and tips about how employers should address these social media issues:

  • * How is social media being used in the workplace?..... It affects all employers, regardless of size.
  • * Can you/should you control the use of social media?
  • * Should I allow my employees to be on Facebook or check their personal email during working hours?
  • * What legal and policy considerations should I be aware of?
  • * What types of policies may I legally have?
  • * I only have a small company, how does this affect me?
