Instagram and Vine Present Risks for Employers, but They Must Be Cautious Policing Workplace Use – Daniel Scwhartz

At this moment, there are 144,337 Instagram photos or videos with the hashtag #worksucks. There are 26,207 posts with #ihatemyjob. I wonder how many of those reflect well, at all, on the employers. Can’t be many. But while employers, I’m sure, would love to restrict employees from taking any photos or videos at all in the workplace, creating such a policy may land them in trouble with the National Labor Relations Board. Joining me now to discuss the issue is Daniel Schwartz, attorney with Shipman & Goodwin and author on the excellent Connecticut Employment Law Blog.
