The Courtroom & Social Media

In Elephant in the Courtroom: Social Media Don Richards writes for Lawyers Weekly that courts must create common sense and balanced rules to deal with social media.  Richards is a partner at Farris LLP in Vancouver and was counsel on Canada’s first Facebook termination case.  He was also recently interviewed by Global TV discussing the implications of the use of social media by employees and job seekers.  According to a recent survey by the social media monitoring service Reppler, more than 90 percent of recruiters will check job applicants out on social media sites.
