Social Media and Employment Law Issues- Hiring & Firing P.1

In this video, Christopher W. Statham a Toronto employment lawyer talks about social media and employment law issues in regards to hiring employees and firing employees for Toronto human resources professionals.

Christopher talks about the impact of social media on employment law issues. For example can you do background checks on potential employees on social media such as Facebook? Can you also fire an employee for what they post on Facebook or other social media sites.

Do the employees or potential employees have a reasonable expectation of privacy for what they post on their Facebook page?

These days there is more and more time spent by employees at work checking their social media accounts. Do employers have the right to ask for your Facebook password?
