The Wisconsin Social Media Protection Act follows in the steps of other states in establishing certain privacy rights in social media account information for employees and students, while it also extends the protection to tenants. This presentation will take an in depth look at the recently implemented law and other significant updates in the field of social media and labor and employment law.
Attend this seminar to understand how a “friend” request can lead to discrimination so that you can educate clients about their rights to block employers, schools, and property management companies from accessing their social media accounts. The presenter will also explain the exceptions such as information available to the public, accessed on an employer-owned device, or necessary for an investigation of alleged transfer of company proprietary or confidential information.
The presenter, Jesse Dill, will also explain how employer clients can avoid liability under the Act and which employee activities have been determined to be outside the scope of the Act’s protection. He will discuss how both individual and employer clients can strengthen their positions based on existing precedent.
