The rapid evolution of social media and the activities of employees have created legal challenges for employers. Social media has the potential to impact almost every aspect of an employment relationship. Cyberbullying, harassment, protected concerted activity, employment discrimination, confidential company information, and employee privacy rights are all issues that employers have been forced to struggle with when addressing the use/misuse of social media by employees and management.
