This panel will provide an overview of recent developments in privacy rights
as it relates to social media. The topics will include a look at newly enacted
and proposed legislation seeking to protect employees’ social media
information. The panel will discuss what this legislation means to employees
and employers, such as enforcement, causes of action, and remedies. The
panel will also look at what this type of legislation will mean and/or how it
will change in the next 5-10 years. To this end, the panel will also address
the interplay between the personal and professional in social media and
discuss the ramifications of social media existing as both personal and
professional as we move forward in a world that increasingly relies on social
media for communication.
