Social Media Policies

MaierCarr understands that with ubiquitous social media and corporate websites as integral components of our professional and personal lives, businesses large and small leave themselves vulnerable to issues related to reputational risk, employer liability for intellectual property infringement, false advertising, regulatory breaches, defamation, unfair competition, NLRB complaints, employment law, public policy, harassment and disclosure of trade secrets.

Enterprises ranging from local restaurants to large multinational corporations are susceptible to a wide spectrum of time-consuming and potentially expensive legal and management problems without having developed and implemented detailed and thoughtful policies regarding the use of and participation in social media by employees.

MaierCarr has the expertise to assist enterprises with the development of these policies which then must be incorporated into the fabric of the enterprise, regularly updated and communicated as part of a consistent program of training and compliance.
