Jodka quoted in Smart HR Manager article about Twitter and workplace communications

Thompson Information Services quoted attorney Sara Jodka in the article,"The Trouble with ‘Twibel’: A New Social Media Headache for Employers," published in the May 30, 2014 issue of Smart HR Manager, one of its industry publications. The article discusses why it’s important for employers to include Twitter on their lists of workplace communications that may potentially expose them to defamation claims, and what companies can do to protect their businesses from lawsuits.

"Legally speaking, libel is defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words that harms the reputation of another. Twibel, therefore, is a modern spin on an old issue." - Sara Jodka
