In partnership with Martin Thomas, author of the Financial Times Guide to Social Media Strategy, Goodman Derrick recently hosted a hugely successful social media strategy seminar on the many legal, regulatory and reputational challenges that have been created by the use of social media by employees and senior managers. 

His chapter on risk management features expert advice from Goodman Derrick's Employment Team and at the seminar, Katee Dias (Senior Associate in our Employment Team) spoke about some case law involving situations where employees had been dismissed by their employer for social media posts.

A follow up paper, summarising key topics on employment issues, is now available to download here.
