Staying Professional on Social Media

28 Feb 2023 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This event has now taken place.  Details of what it was about is noted below:

Are you and your colleagues aware of the potential pitfalls of social media use?   Do you understand when the boundaries between personal and professional posting become blurred how this could impact on your organisation’s reputation?  How do you deal with a case of social media misuse if things go wrong?

This is an area that EVH can often receive queries on from members, as the impact of social media in the workplace environment has dramatically increased in recent times.  The boundary between work and home life is becoming more difficult to define and stories of employees being dismissed for misuse of social media sites such as Facebook can often feature in the media.

To help you avoid the pitfalls, join us online for this session with Paul McMahon from McMahon Employment Law, who will use case studies and examples to take a practical look at how employers can manage social media issues within the workplace, from recruitment through to termination of employment.  The session will then conclude with a short question-and-answer section.


Paul is a solicitor specialising in Employment Law with more than 20 years' experience of advising and representing clients throughout the UK.  He is a director and the founder of McMahon Employment Law, a specialist Employment Law practice.  He advises clients on the full spectrum of workplace issues including dismissal, discrimination, restructures and redundancy, industrial relations, contractual disputes and TUPE and provides representation in employment litigation.

He has been recognised by the UK-wide independent legal directories, The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, in the field of employment law.  He also teaches post-graduate law students on the Diploma in Legal Practice and has lectured on Employment Law Masters courses.  In addition, he regularly provides training to clients and speaks at conferences.

This event will took place online via Zoom on Tuesday 28 February 2023 from 12.30pm to 2.00pm.
