Social Media Monitoring and Disciplining Soars


A survey of compliance and ethics pros by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) and the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) reveals that an increasing number of companies are monitoring social media use by employees. In addition, employees are being disciplined for their activities on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn both at work and outside of work. Other key findings include:

• 42% of respondents report that disciplinary actions had been taken against employees using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn inappropriately, an increase from 24% reported in 2009.

• Despite the rising disciplinary action, just 31% of respondents report that their organizations had actually set policies addressing the use of social media Web sites outside of work.

• 35% report that they were not permitted to access Facebook or Twitter at work.

• 47% report that “anyone” may access LinkedIn at work; for-profit companies were more likely to allow access to LinkedIn than nonprofits.
