As technology develops and we become more contactable, the line between work and home becomes more blurred. Where do you draw the line on workplace liability and to what extent can an employer take into account actions of an employee that occur outside of the workplace?

At this seminar Bridget will discuss the development of technology and social media and how this impacts on the rights and obligations of employers and employees. She will discuss how this may differ for different roles and whether an employer actually needs to prove damage to its reputation. She will also provide some practical advice on how employers and clients can best protect themselves.
