Social Media Challenges at Work (CIRA Event)

If you’re in Calgary, join me on November 24 at the Village Park Inn for a dinner event hosted by the Southern Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA):

“Social Media Challenges at Work”

Expert panelists: Sarah Eaton, John Moreau, Andy Robertson and Tom Hesse

An employee uses Facebook to malign her employer and harass co-workers. A manager regularly patrols the internet, “Googling” employees and monitoring their email. Where does the line get drawn between off-duty conduct, privacy, and the employer’s liability for the actions of its employees? What factors do adjudicators consider when analyzing social media cases? How can employers, unions and workers best protect themselves? Our panel of experts will address these and other thorny issues surrounding social media at work.

Join us for an enlightening conversation with Dr. Sarah Eaton, social media researcher and consultant; Arbitrator John Moreau; Andy Robertson, Partner, Macleod Dixon; and Tom Hesse, UFCW Negotiator and Executive Assistant to the President.

Cost: $40 for Non-CIRA members, $30 for members
