Week 2 Case Study: Social Media Policies, Concerted Activity, and HR Management
In the last few years, companies have begun initiating and implementing social media policies for their employees to follow. These policies range from encouraging employees to utilizing social media for marketing purposes, to restricting the use of social media for employees in order to ensure that they do not hurt the company image. As these policies become more widespread, both the Society for Human Resource Management and the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) have become concerned about the limits on speech and activity that employers are imposing on their workers. Further, in some states, laws are being passed to protect employees and potential employees from being required to disclose social media passwords during job interviews or after hire. Finally, many ethical concerns are being raised about the use of social media as a method of doing quick, informal background checks on potential hires or current employees.
For your homework this week, research the following questions and provide your findings in answers that are long enough to sufficiently answer the questions (about 2–3 good paragraphs each). Provide citations in APA style for each of your answers.
Questions to Research and Answer
The NLRB has made findings regarding the use of employee posts on social media sites to discipline or terminate those employees. Typically, these cases occur when an employee posts negative information about his or her current employer or boss. Sometimes, these are public, and other times, the employer uses spies or fake friending to see the Facebook page of the employee.
To ensure that your paper isn’t flagged in Turnitin.com, do NOT copy and paste the questions into your paper. Instead, set up headings for each section where you answer the questions, using good APA form.
