Any dealer who has ever Googled a job applicant or checked the individualês Twitter or Facebook profile may have accessed information that is protected by law, such as age, race and disabilities. Having accessed this information can land an employer on the wrong end of a discrimination lawsuit.
Any dealer who has ever disciplined an employee for posting a disparaging remark online about a manager or about the dealership could be hit with a lawsuit. And a recent court decision has determined that it is illegal to have a policy requiring that all dealership personnel be courteous to one another.
The use of social media in hiring and employment has been a hot topic lately, and recently car dealers have been finding themselves on the losing end in court battles. The laws and regulations havenêt been able to keep pace with emerging social media technologies, and courts are rarely siding with employers.
This webinar can teach dealers:
« The current laws that affect the dealershipês use of social media as it relates to job applicants, the hiring process and current employees.
« How courts are currently interpreting these laws and how they affect dealersê decision making.
« How to craft a social media policy that will allow a dealership to take advantage of the tools available while remaining out of legal trouble.
