The IAFF Internet Manual: The Law and the Internet for IAFF Affiliates
A new resource for affiliate leaders has been posted on the IAFF’s web site on the legal rights and responsibilities of members, officers, and affiliates – and employers – when it comes using online media.
As more and more members blog, text, tweet, Facebook, Meetup, post, email, or g-chat, the legal and workplace pitfalls of that activity are becoming a critical battleground. Communicating with members using these media also present legal concerns for affiliates and their officers.
The IAFF has developed a manual, in question-and-answer format, to help educate officers on these ever-developing issues.
Topics covered include:
• Online voting
• Employer internet and social media policies
• Employee privacy
• Web and bulletin board hosting
• Discipline for online activity
The manual is download-only, and available to any affiliate officer registered on the IAFF web site. To register, click here. To download the “The Law and the Internet for IAFF Affiliates,” visit the Legal Department’s web page.
