Individual Distant Learning Programs

Objective: The ultimate objective is to protect your public image and mitigate your liability when employees use social media and smartphones. Our programs empower each employee to post comments and upload pictures without liability. More specifically, I will deliver hard-hitting information that reflects 30 years of advanced specialized media law training experience. The new skills they receive keep them legally safe throughout their career.

Our specialized strategies target hidden liabilities and nuances created by new federal and state social media speech laws. Courts consider employees using social media as broadcasters and have a higher standard of care when sending electronic messages. Our advanced specialized social media and smartphone liability training satisfies this standard. What makes this program so different from other social media training, is that I focus on media law not labor law. You learn to navigate the hidden liabilities that others overlook.

I use my 30 years of media law training experience to make a connection with your employees and cut through the legal jargon. All the modules include video of me explaining various strategies, real life scenarios and attendees can send me questions by email. Even more important is the follow-up. Attendees have access to critical legal updates on our knowledge page for one year. The beauty of this program is that each employee can access their courses on their own schedule.
