Social Media: A Labour Law Perspective
Technology advances at a faster pace than the law does. The rise of social media – both within and beyond the workplace – has changed (and complicated) employment relationships and legislation. Legislation has had to evolve and expand to protect our fundamental rights to dignity, privacy and free speech. Social Media: A Labour Law Perspective takes a case-driven approach to exploring the ways in which social media has impacted on employment relations, including the risks of defamation and vicarious liability for employers. The book explores how new media changes and challenges our assumptions and attempts to balance the rights of all parties, and how it strives to make this complex new legal environment approachable, practical and forward-looking. With Social Media: A Labour Law Perspective, you will be prepared to protect the interests of employers and employees in the digital era.
