UNISON Belfast

This course looks at the rise of Social Media, raising awareness of the dos and don’ts of using social media and how to protect yourself online.  Branches are increasingly using social media to communicate with members and promote what we do.   However, this can leave branches and individuals open to litigation.  It is essential that all those who use social media on behalf of the branch or identify themselves as UNISON activists on personal social media accounts complete this course.  It will enable you to fully understand the law and how to protect yourself, your branch and UNISON’s reputation.  This course will cover the legal framework governing data protection, liability, libel laws using case studies and group discussion.  The tutor is Brian McAnoy
