Your Employee’s Social Media Usage

Due to the rapid growth of social media, employers and employees have fought to find a balance between social media and the workplace.

Individual employees can use their own social media activities as a powerful tool to promote your dealership, but how can you ensure what they say is positive?  Some employers attempted to require employees to provide access to their social media accounts, causing lawmakers to create legislation to ban these practices.

Since 2012, twelve states have passed legislation barring employers from requesting electronic password information, including social media passwords. Currently similar legislation is pending in many other states.
