The American Staffing Association has published a revised Sample Social Media Policy for ASA members. This sample policy is designed to help staffing firms address the use-and potential abuse-of social media networking tools with their employees.
The sample policy was revised by the law firm Seyfarth Shaw and includes changes that take into account recent decisions by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board. Staffing firms should have a social media policy in place, regardless of whether their employees are represented by a union, because NLRB decisions are applicable to unionized and nonunion workplaces.
