Social Media Policies
The process typically includes:
Establishing a team of internal employee stakeholders to participate in developing the policies in order to secure consensus, engagement and program support. The team should include all relevant functional units including General Counsel, Marketing, IT, Human Resources, Communication and Ethics and Compliance.
Integrating the new policies with other current policies that have proved effective for the organization, such as its current code of conduct and communications guidelines. It’s important to require that these policies also apply to social media networking.
Establishing a clear definition of social media and social networking, so that everyone from senior management to entry-level employees can properly support the program.
Effectively explaining all the details pertaining to the company’s right to inspect its employees’ online activities, the definition of confidential and proprietary information, the need to protect the company’s public image, best practices for managing the company’s “network,” and the requirements to keep personal and work communications separate.
All employees should receive a printed copy of the social media policy and sign an acknowledgement confirming they have read and understood it. A copy of the signed policy should be kept in every employee’s personnel file.

The firm’s attorneys help companies understand employee handbook policies pertaining to antitrust compliance, sexual harassment, confidentiality and disclosure and the appropriate use of company equipment and services.
