Employee Social Media Policy
Yesterday we had a concerned FB user that reached out to us regarding something one of our employees posted on her personal page. The reason this person contacted me was that this person tagged us as her employer, and felt she posted something hateful toward the LGBT community. We as a team felt it was inappropriate, but more a political statement than hate speech. Our concern is that if she tagged us as her employer, does this represent us in a bad light, and do we have the right to have input into employee's posted opinions? What is your policy around this? We are having a discussion around free speech vs. representing our brand. I would love to hear more about how you handle this. If you would be willing to share your employee policy, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
