Media Mentions

September 25, 2015

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Michael Moschel spoke at the seminar "The Complexities and Challenges of Social Media in the Workplace" sponsored by the Human Resource Association of the National Capital Area in Washington, D.C. on September 16, 2015. Bloomberg BNA provided a recap of Michael's presentation in the article "Facebook 'Likes' a Headache for Employer Policies." As Michael pointed out in his presentation, "employers have a right to protect their legitimate business interests and a duty to protect employees and customers, so they may discipline employees for off-duty conduct on social media where it has some impact on those interests." The article includes 10 factors for a company to consider when crafting a social media policy, such as what activity is restricted and permitted under the National Labor Relations Act.

The full article, "Facebook 'Likes' a Headache for Employer Policies," was published on September 21, 2015 on the Bloomberg BNA website and is available online.
