The perils of social media in the workplace

In this update, workplace relations and safety partner Annie Smeaton discusses the difficulties faced by employers in navigating these issues and the social media policies all employers should have in place to ensure they meet their legislative obligations. We then take a look at the use of social media in terms of the investigation of workplace injury claims.

[Running time: 45 mins]



Social media has infiltrated many aspects of our lives, including workplace relationships. The use of social media accounts has blurred the lines between work and social life.

Particular difficulties emerge where:

  • workplace conflict is escalated to cyberspace to the knowledge of the employer
  • social media is used to ‘spy’ on team members including those who may be off work due to injury
  • employees seek to criticise fellow team members or their employer using private social media accounts.
