Social Media Policy

Social Media Policy

Why do employers need policies and procedures?

There are many reasons why an employer should have a suite of professionally drafted, legally compliant policies and procedures. Below are just three of those reasons:

  1. They aid in the smooth running of an organisation. Well-drafted and compliant workplace policies and procedures provide employees and managers with clarity when dealing with issues that may arise on a day-to-day basis.
  2. Up to date policies and procedures ensure compliance with current legislation and regulations and facilitate fast and efficient internal decision making.
  3. Policies and procedures provide a clear and certain framework that eliminates discrimination, promotes best practice, improves staff communication and expresses the organisation’s vision.

Do I need a lawyer to draft my policies and procedures?

No, but when running your own business it can be difficult to keep up with changes to legislation and best practice.  We work closely with our clients auditing their policies and procedures on a regular basis or when there has been a significant change in the law. As such our clients are confident that their policies and procedures are up to date and protect and enhance their business.

How can EPR law help?

EPR Law will draft for you a social media policy that sets out, in clear terms the standards your organisation requires staff to observe when using social media as wells as the circumstances in which the organisation will monitor the use of social media and the action it will take if this policy is breached. Our current policy will cover the following:



  1. An introduction to the aims of the policy and to who it applies
  2. A definition of social media
  3. General rules for use of social media
  4. Using social media platforms in the Company’s name
  5. The use of work-related social media
  6. Personal use of social media platforms
  7. Rights to social media accounts
  8. Monitoring
  9. Recruitment
  10. Breaches of this policy
  11. Acknowledgement and declaration
