Padma Tadi: Social Media Policy

As the use of social media continues to evolve and is increasingly prevalent in both personal and working lives, Padma is regularly asked to provide advice on the legal issues which arise as a result:

“What action can an employer take if an employee posts confidential information or detrimental comments on a social media site?”

“On the termination of their employment, can an employee leave with confidential client/ supplier details gathered on sites such as LinkedIn and what can/should an employer do to protect itself?”

At this event Padma will consider these questions along with other frequently asked questions by recruiters relating to social media.
