New Chapter on Social Media — As more and more work moves to computers, smart phones, and mobile devices, employees are increasingly using those same devices to instantly access social media, both on and off duty. Employers are trying to regulate that use both on duty, where it affects time on work tasks, and off duty where it may affect work place comity and civility. The new Third Edition devotes an entire chapter to the developing area of employee use of social media. This treatise highlights emerging issues in a social media world where the expectations of privacy are changing and where speech traditionally regarded as “off duty” may raise workplace concerns. It shows how existing concepts of “nexus” and “disparagement” are being used to determine when activity outside the workplace sufficiently impacts the workplace so as to be a proper subject of discipline. Also explored are the NLRA issues raised by social media becoming the way workers communicate with one another, and how arbitrators account for NLRA concerns. The new arbitral discovery issues created by social media providers are also discussed.
The Third Edition gives advocates new insight on how to argue their cases in areas such as drugs, harassment, social media, and others where new arbitral trends have emerged or older trends have been abandoned. It offers specific information on the principles of just cause that have been developed to address both substantive and procedural issues in discipline cases. Neutrals will find how traditional principles have been modified—or not—to account for different work places with new technology.
