Bad language, risqué or overly “political" discussions or materials, weapons, and mobile devices: when are these against the law, when are they just “not suitable for work,” and when are they perfectly fine?

This webinar will cover the difference between illegal and merely “inappropriate” workplace behavior and suggest ways for employers to deal effectively with it all. We’ll talk about the following:

  • Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Cursing in the workplace
  • Maybe you should save that for home: Inappropriate discussions, web surfing, and reading material
  • Weapons on the job: NSFW, or reasonable self-defense?
  • Gadget glut: “Bring your own device” policies and minimizing employer risks

Presented by Robin Shea at Constangy.  Constangy authors the Model Policies and Forms for Georgia Employers and the New Jersey Human Resources Manual.
