[author:  ]

The Ontario Information & Privacy Commissioner (OIPC) has published booklet regarding social media and reference checks, entitled “Reference Check: Is Your Boss Watching? The New World of Social Media: Privacy and Your Facebook Profile“.

The booklet warns employees and job-hunters of the perils of indiscreet postings on social media sites. The booklet is directed at educating Ontarians about what the OIPC describes as intrusive background checking activities. However, the booklet is also an excellent HR resource for educating employees regarding social media best practices.

For more on this subject, see my previous post.
