This seminar will also be held in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

As courts and government agencies explore the boundaries of employee rights to self-expression and privacy in their use of social media, employers are seeking practical guidance in managing employees’ social media use.

This seminar will focus on common questions on the minds of employers:

  • Can employers consider social media postings when making hiring decisions?
  • To what extent should employers regulate and monitor employee social media use?
  • What types of legal claims can arise from an employer's attempts to regulate employees' social media postings?
  • What are the components of an effective social media policy?
  • How can employers guide their workforce to a productive use of social media?


  • Daniel Westman, Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Jeremy Merkelson, Associate, Morrison & Foerster LLP

We will apply for Virginia MCLE credit after the program.
