Employers may find social media to be a tempting tool for screening new applicants for employment. However, researching job applicants (and even current employees) on social media can lead to illegal discrimination and expose companies to a myriad of legal issues.

Join us for an in-depth seminar to discuss the "seven deadly sins" of social media screening and offer practical advice for screening and hiring without risk.

Workshop topics include:

  • Who, when and how to screen
  • When enough is enough
  • Compliance with applicable laws
  • Collecting social media passwords
  • Negligent hiring
