Social media research paper
The research paper Workplaces and Social Networking: The Implications for Employment Relations [386kb] from the Institute for Employment Studies, commissioned by Acas, advises employers to:
- Draw up a policy on social networking.
- Deal with employees' use of social media tools following the same standards of conduct and disciplinary and grievance procedures for behaviour offline.
- React reasonably to issues involving social media by asking and taking into account, 'What is the likely impact on the organisation?'
