Social Media and First Amendment Webinar
3:00 PM EST – Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Daigle Law Group LLC is proud to continue the 2019 Legal/Policy Development Webinar Series. These seminars are designed to provide Department executives and those responsible for policy development with options and tools to ensure their policies are effective.

Please join Attorney Eric Daigle and Attorney Eric Atstupenas for a lively and engaging webinar to discuss the topic of Social Media and First Amendment Implications. This webinar will review legal standards applicable to disciplining public employees for social media content, as well as a review of agency policy and procedure considerations. The webinar will also review the 4th Circuit case Liverman v. City of Petersburg, including the Court’s analysis of an overreaching social media policy. While the underlying purpose of Liverman was to deter agencies from developing policies that have a chilling effect on First Amendment rights, the decision has resulted in a freezing effect on an agency’s ability to control its employees’ online speech. Finally, the webinar will review such topics as: blocking, hiding, muting, removing, and policing third-party posts on an agency’s social media site.
