A Sign of the Times – Are you prepared?

Acas has today placed guidance on its website about the importance of employers putting in place a policy on Social Networking.

With smart phones, internet, tweeting and blogging becoming the norm, social networking is starting to cost employers who are having to deal with an increasing number of claims by employees of theft, defamation, bullying and invasion of privacy resulting from misuse of the internet and social networking sites.

The advice from Acas is simple – if you have not already got a policy in place on Social Networking, get one drafted quickly! That way you will be equipped to react and deal with such issues.
