Dealing with racist tweets by employees (Shoosmiths)

A lot of the social media updates that have been published in the past few months have concerned social media and employment law. We have all heard stories about employers enooping on Facebook and Twitter, but at times there are genuine concerns about how the outpourings of an individual on social media could affect their employer.

A good introduction for both employers and employees.
