PLDO Lawyers Provide Guidance on Social Media Use in the Workplace

The use of social media in the workplace to exchange and deliver information has exploded in the Digital Age. Pannone Lopes Devereaux & O'Gara Partner William E. O'Gara and Senior Counsel Brian J. Lamoureux have taken the lead on the research and study of emerging case law regarding e-communications by employees using social networks like Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other platforms, including email. Both attorneys are regularly invited guest speakers before business owners and human resource managers on the critical need to have a clear social media policy as part of a personnel policy handbook. Their research is extensive and the PLDO attorneys are published authors and authorities in this area of new case law.

The lawyers' recent newspaper columns include Privacy Rights Being Tested in the Digital Age, Digital Age Hiring Process Filled With Danger, Texting in the Workplace? Dangers Abound, and Email Privacy not a Guarantee in Workplace.
