Establish the organisation's policy on social media use

Key points

  • While employers in some industries, including the media, are likely to encourage their employees to make reasonable and appropriate use of social media as part of their work, others will want to take a more restrictive approach.
  • It is advisable for employers to set out their approach to use by employees of social media, how this will be monitored, and the potential consequences of breaches of the policy.
