Should employees play on Web at work?

Written by 

A workshop regarding the legalities and liabilities of employee use of social networking websites will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9, in Room 143 of the Cordelia Camp Building on the campus of Western Carolina University.

Jon Yarbrough, an employment attorney with the national labor and employment law firm Constangy, Brooks & Smith, will lead the three-hour workshop.

Many employees use social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook — the latter claims 500 million active users — for personal use, such as connecting with family and friends. According to Yarbrough, the sites can lead to unwanted liability for employers based on employee misuse.

Registration, which includes lunch, is $99. Call 828.227.3688 or visit www.wcu.edu/26755.asp

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
