Courts Classify Social Media As A "High Liability" 

Employee Activity, Not Just A PIO or Marketing Issue

  • Under new 42 U.S.C. 1983 training standards, all employees must receive outside specialized social media liability training. Verbal warnings and boilerplate policies aren't evidence of adequate training.

  • Decision-makers are personally liable for showing "deliberate indifference" towards the obvious need for more in-depth employee social media liability training and policies.

*Legal Authority: See the cautionary tales of Liverman v. City of Petersbur 844 F3d. 400 (2016)

 and O'Laughlin v. Palm Beach County 20-14676 (11th Cir. April 1, 2022). See traditional inadequate training analysis on "high liability" issues under City of Canton, Ohio v. Harris, 489 U.S. 378 (1989).

Ignorance Of The New Social Media Laws Is Not.png

Alarming Statistics

Employees Are Being Warned, Not Trained

  • Out of 3,436 public employees and elected officials who claimed their previous social media law training was adequate, the average score on my basic 6 question social media law pre-test was 13%.

  • 100% of the test-takers didn't know the 3 core elements of libel law.

  • 100% of the test-takers didn't know the new off-duty "Free Speech" laws using personal social media accounts.

30,000 Public Sector Professionals Agree,

My $9 Per Person Online Social Media Liability Course Is Urgent For All Employees

"Too many public employees have paid the price for not receiving the tools to navigate social media safely. After auditing Mark Fiedelholtz’ s Social Media Liability Course with our fire chief, we decided to mandate this training to every member of our teams.

If you want to protect your people and your department,

I strongly recommend this online course."

Tim Barfield, Chief Of Police, Wellington, OH (2021)

Courts now recognize the permanent reputational harm that can be caused by social media posts. Social media damages are being adjudicated as willful conduct, not just negligence. This ruling exposes employees to paying punitive damages out of pocket. See inadequate training analysis on "high liability" employee issues under City of Canton, Ohio v. Harris 489 U.S. 378 (1989).
