Social media is everywhere. It’s at home, at the gym, at the grocery store, at school, and even at work. The use of social media has become so pervasive in today's workplace that it is even having an impact on the enforcement of federal laws.
A meeting was recently held with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Washington DC about this very topic. The meeting helped the EEOC understand exactly how social media is being used in the office and what impact it may have on the laws enforced and on the mission to fix discriminatory practices in the workplace.
