On July 31, Los Angeles Pascal Benyamini presented a one hour seminar on Social Media in the Workplace at the North American Home Furnishings Association, Las Vegas Furniture Market held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The seminar focused on employer social media policies, the do’s and don’ts, best practices, and social media and background checks. Some of the specific questions that the presentation addressed were: How can employers restrict employees’ use of social media yet at the same time preserve employees’ rights and their privacy? When can an employee be disciplined for statements made on social media? To what extent should managers use social media regarding current and prospective employees, especially when conducting background checks?
The North American Home Furnishings Association is the nation’s largest organization devoted specifically to the needs and interests of home furnishings retailers.
