An employer should set out in writing what they regard as acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.

Make clear whether personal use of social media sites is permitted on computers and mobile phones in your workplace. Be aware of what your business publishes across the range of social media platforms and put appropriate compliance and quality control procedures in place. It should also give clear guidelines for employees on what they can and cannot say about the business.

  1. Acceptable behaviour and use of the internet: are employees allowed any personal use? Are some websites prohibited entirely? i.e. Facebook or online shopping sites such as Amazon.
  2. Smart phones: are employees allowed to use their own phone whilst in work? If the employer provides a phone, what personal use are they allowed? Not just phone calls, but data and internet use – browsing websites, watching videos, downloading apps.
  3. Social networks, including blogging and Tweeting: can employees use social networks and make posts during the working day? It’s a good idea to be very clear about what is and isn’t acceptable to post about. You may have staff who are employed to manage your company’s own social media profile, in which case you will need to be clear about the standards you expect.
  4. Data protection and monitoring: will there be strict monitoring involved? Employees need to be made aware of the monitoring. Logging everything and reading personal emails is likely to be unacceptable.
  5. Disciplinary consequences of a breach of the policy: it’s important to flag to employees, that breaches of the policy may attract disciplinary measures, if appropriate.

Employers should make clear that harassment and bullying of other employees via social media will be treated in the same way as harassment or bullying in any other context. This can be included in an anti-bullying and harassment policy.

The UK GDPR sets out the key principles, rights and obligations for most processing of personal data in the UK.

For individuals, the UK GDPR aims to strengthen individuals’ rights in relation to how their personal data are processed, giving them greater control over their own identity, privacy and interactions with others. For organisations, it aims to remove unnecessary barriers to trade and co-operation and enable the free flow of data, while ensuring proper protections are in place.
