Employee Blogs and Websites: How to Protect Your Company from the Legal Risk of Workers Going Online
Given the popularity of blogging, an increasing number of workers are actively engaged in social media. While employers can benefit from employee blogging, it also can create new risks for businesses.
This webinar was first presented by The Prinz Law Office Founder Kristie Prinz on July 15, 2008 for American Features Syndicate. The response was so overwhelming that American Features Syndicate asked Kristie to repeat the program again on August 1, 2008.
The program is designed to educate companies on the legal risks from employee blogging and to provide them with some best practices to manage those risk.
