Do you as an employer have a robust social media policy in place?

The case of Smith -v- British Waterways Board [2015] heard at the EAT this month emphasised the importance of a robust social media policy.

David Smith was fired after posting offensive comments on Facebook. The employer British Waterways Board argued it was fair to dismiss Mr Smith even though he posted the comments in 2013. The EAT found in favour of the employer British Waterways Board.

The employer in this case had a social media policy in place defining such a breach as gross misconduct rather than misconduct. The importance of using the correct wording is extremely important.
