Employment law and social networking sites

I came across a law-based paper the other day that looks at the dilemmas employers face when employees over-use social networking websites on work time.

A summary of the paper is as follows:

This article considers how relevant UK legislation and employers’ policies impact on the use of social networking sites, highlights some of the problem areas that cause employers most concern and provides guidance on how employers can take practical steps to avert the dangers involved.

If you are a manager or employer who needs to understand the legal risks of online social networking use and requires practical advice on what steps you can take to mitigate them, then see Online Social Networking: The Employer's Dilemma (The Register) for more details (requires minimal registration).
