The Do’s and Don’ts of Using Social Media as a Recruitment Tool

Presently, both the Minnesota Legislature and the United States Congress have failed to enact legislation that would prevent prospective employees from having to provide their social media passwords and other information to employers as a condition of employment. Additionally, often conflicting opinions issued by state and federal courts leave them without a single body of law governing the use of social media in an employment context.  Please join us as we discuss the ever changing and evolving legal landscape while exploring the do’s and don’ts of using social media as a recruitment tool.  We will also review best practices designed to reduce the potential claims based upon unfair employment practices involving social media.

Presenter: Joseph G. Jarret, Attorney at Law

Are You at Risk for Employee Retaliation Claims?

The EEOC is telling us that retaliation claims are up significantly in all areas of the employment arena.  We see evidence of that with the court docket.   Add in the Affordable Care Act with its anti-retaliation provision, and we have some serious issues on our hands. In order to avoid these difficult claims, employers are going to have to be savvy in identifying, documenting and managing potential retaliation complaints.  Join us for a hands-on, entertaining seminar by Jessica Roe of Bassford Remele.  Jessica will provide us with specific information on the top ways to avoid retaliation claims in the workplace or at least safely navigate them when they do arise.

Presenter: Jessica Roe, Bassford Remele
