    This program addresses the challenges of balancing the bank’s screening and monitoring rights with expectations of privacy and fairness held by job candidates and bank employees. Should your internal HR department conduct employment screenings on social media? Should you hire a third party to screen applicants’ social media? Should you monitor only the bank’s professional social media? Should you also track public social media (Twitter & YouTube)? Should you demand access to employees’ Facebook accounts? Should you monitor social media activity on personal mobile devices and bank-owned smartphones? This program will answer those questions and more. Nancy Flynn, author of The Social Media Handbook and Blog Rules and founder of The ePolicy Institute, will reveal when, why, and how to handle social media monitoring legally, ethically, and compliantly.

    This is a rebroadcast of a session that was originally recorded in March 2017. 

    Overview

    Does your bank monitor employees and research job candidates on social media? Have you found something on social media that led you to discipline an employee or reject a candidate? If so, you may be setting your bank up for a discrimination lawsuit. When handled lawfully, the monitoring of employees’ personal, professional, and public social media can help reduce legal & regulatory risks. When handled appropriately, social media employment screenings can help your bank gain a clear understanding of the person behind the resume. When approached improperly, however, monitoring job candidates on social media can trigger costly discrimination claims. Requiring employees to provide access to their personal Facebook accounts may violate privacy law.
