Lisa Bryson, Associate at A&L Goodbody, outlines a checklist on social media in the workplace.

  • Is your email and internet use or communications policy is currently 'fit for purpose'?
  • Review your disciplinary, bullying and harassment, and data protection policies to ensure that they 'dovetail' your social media policy.

  • Staff contracts and any restrictive covenants
  • Do you have a 'bring your own device policy' in place?
  • Social media as a recruitment tool.
