Sizemore's Second "Counsel Commentary" Published

InsideCounsel
September 2013

The second column in Charlotte Employment & Labor Member Russ Sizemore’s three-column “Counsel Commentary” InsideCounsel series published on September 23.  The piece, “Can you believe this? Look at what I found on his Facebook page!,” discusses the need for employers “to be very intentional about how they use information obtained via social media, despite the inherent informality of that medium and the information commonly shared in that setting.”  Sizemore addresses in two capacities: social media information and the hiring process, and limiting social media communications/discipline of current employees.

Sizemore’s first column in the series, “Your ‘Please keep this quiet’ demand may itself raise a ruckus,” published on September 9.  It addressed confidentiality in the workplace and offered three current areas that present special risk for employers.
