Read the document to make sure it meets your needs. Remember that if you have any questions you can easily Ask a lawyer.
Just having a Policy doesn’t mean you’ve actually adopted the content of the Policy. Instead, you should make a clear plan for implementation of the Social Media Policy.
Make the Social Media Policy available to employees by, for example:
including it in induction packs
providing it in hard copy
sending it out by email
putting it on notice boards or an intranet site or other easily accessible company computer systems.
The Social Media Policy is not a contract and does not need to be signed or agreed to by the employee. You can, however, ask employees sign to an acknowledgement to show that they received it, but it’s not legally required.
A copy of the Social Media Policy will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
Whenever you amend the Social Media Policy, you should keep a copy of each version that has been in force, a record of when it was introduced and how and when each version was made available to employees.
