HR and Social Media: Practical and Legal Guidance - New Book, Coming Soon!

I am excited to announce that I will contribute a chapter to HR and Social Media: Practical and Legal Guidance, a groundbreaking book from Thompson Publishing... coming this summer! Jon Hyman assembled the team, and I am grateful for the opportunity. He issued this announcement earlier today, from which I will steal borrow some of the details.

First, the content:
  1. Introduction: Social Media Horror Stories
  2. What is Social Media?
  3. Drafting the Social Media Policy
  4. Using Social Media in Hiring, Recruiting, and Employee Engagement
  5. Employee Privacy and Defamation
  6. Confidentiality, Non-Competition Agreements, and Trade Secrets
  7. Harassment, discrimination, and Retaliation
  8. Discovery of Social Media in Litigation  
  9. Social Media and Labor Law
I will contribute a chapter on: What is Social Media? You're probably wondering who else is on Jon's team:
That's quite a team! And, I'm honored to be a part of it. I thank Jon for including me and can't wait to see the finished product.
