When employees are disparaged by outsiders

I spent today in Banff at the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers and sat on a social media and privacy panel with David Fraser of McInnes Cooper and Philip Gordon of Littler Mendelson. I’ve put my materials below. There’s a paper on how to manage employee disparagement by individuals from outside the organization. I’ve then included my notes for the panel, which include commentary on (1) the influence of American law, (2) the significance of the Kone GPS case, (3) striking a balance when implementing new privacy-invasive policy, (4) WSIB claims resulting from disparagement, (5) the risks associated with giving employment references and (6) the duty of loyalty and fidelity of current employees.
