        • SCORE Chicago Social Media Policy & Confidentiality, Daliah Saper, Saper Law


          from Saper Law Added 7 0 0

          SCORE Chicago: Social Media Policy & Confidentiality, Daliah Saper, Principal at Saper Law So, let's take a little different situation. Suppose I have a retail store. Ok And I have an employee. We know we have a sales meeting and we announce to the employee that we're going to be marking down our summer line of slacks by 50% next week. And that employee goes out on Twitter or Facebook and says that, we'll say it's Facebook, because Facebook - I kind of have my friends. So, I want to give my friends a preview that the place I work is going to have this big sale on summer slacks. Isn't that a nice thing to do for my friends? Sure, so you need to think about - A. does your company authorize that? Perhaps your company has even hired you or this employee for their wide networks of friend. So, personal branding becomes a huge consideration for hiring practices. You hire Bob because Bob already has a thousand people following him on Facebook and Twitter. Yeah, but I don't think very many people are that far along. I think it's more like, I'm running this ad, in sort of like one week in three weeks from now and I don't want to announce it because I want to have three weeks of selling at the regular price. Obviously, that's clearly an example of proprietary, confidential information that a company does not want to release and so it needs to very clearly set parameters over what is and what is not okay when using social media. So I have to when I, many when I hire people, if I'm somebody running a business today I ought to tomorrow go out and put together a social media policy. Yeah, it's a good practice. If you don't have a social media policy it doesn't mean that none of these things are actionable. It's not like not having one makes someone doing these acts okay. Most of the time when an employee signs on they're signing confidentiality agreements, they're signing perhaps non-compete agreements. The social media policy is a friendly reminder that perhaps you should promise good judgment when you're using these online tools. I know it's easier to disclose this big sale we're having in three weeks, but you better think about it before you even attempt to use a medium like Facebook to disclose that to your friends. Because if I find out that you did do that in violation of your confidentiality agreement, that's actionable. The employee is looking at a pretty severe lawsuit. Do I as a business owner when I'm sitting in the sales meeting do I need to say to my employees, now we're having this sale in three weeks, this is confidential information. You can't disclose this. Yes, if you want to mark something as confidential or proprietary it's important for you to act like it's confidential and proprietary information. Otherwise, the line blurs and it's difficult for any communication to come out. Most companies do have a procedure with which they allow press releases to come out and say this is information that's authorized for distribution, this needs to remain confidential until XYZ date.

                  from Climate Policy Initiative Added 238 1 0

                  This webinar shares the results of The Policy Climate, in which CPI offers an overview of policy issues relevant to climate change across the world over the last thirty years. We find that the implementation of policy relevant to climate change, and its impact, accelerated markedly over the last decade, despite the slow pace of international climate negotiations. The webinar focuses on high-level findings from: - Brazil, China, India, Europe, and the United States—These regions not only represent the majority of global greenhouse gas emissions but vary widely in terms of economic development, natural resource endowment, political system, and climate policy, and can offer different lessons to policymakers; - The economic sectors that represent the greatest potential for greenhouse gas mitigation within each of these regions; and - A defined set of policy issues within these regions and key sectors that most affect climate change. Senior Director David Nelson presents and answers audience questions.

                    from NatureServe Added 31 0 0

                    Here at NatureServe, being steeped in the world of conservation science means that we often get to interact with (and sometimes interview!) some of the foremost thinkers working on environmental issues. Conservation Talks bring you short snippets from these great minds discussing the aspects of their work that make them tick. The first installment features William D. Ruckelshaus, the first and fifth EPA Adminsitrator of the United States, and Deputy Attorney General during the Watergate scandal. We sat down with Bill to discuss a number of important topics, from his ongoing marine conservation work in the Pacific Northwest to the challenges and rewards of passing some of the nation's most significant environmental legislation back in the 1970s. In this clip, Bill discusses how the focus of environmental protection has shifted since the early days of the EPA from point-source pollution like industrial waste to non-point-source pollution like agricultural runoff, and how the role of government regulation has also changed. NatureServe is a network providing the science for effective conservation action. www.natureserve.org Production team: Kyle Copas and Sam Sheline Music: Emo Step Show by The Custodian of Records
