Warner Employment News From the Law Shanty – What Employers Can and Cannot Do in Response to Employees’ Social Media Actions

In this week’s “Warner Employment News From the Law Shanty,” Warner attorney Steve Palazzolo takes a break from COVID-19 news. Instead, he shifts his focus to addressing what employers should do when employees post or share inappropriate, inflammatory or socially insensitive things on social media. Restrictions may apply to government employers and exemptions exist to the general at-will rule for private employers. All of these things, plus the First Amendment, play a significant role in what employers can and cannot do when disciplining or terminating employees for their social media actions.
