You Have 2 Simple Options...
  • Option #1: Avoid risk exposure by complying with the new federal standards requiring that all employees receive outside expert social media and smartphone liability training.

  • Option #2: Put your head in the sand, violate federal standards by giving verbal advice to employees instead of expert liability. Expose yourself and your department to $500,000+ lawsuits, personal liability, and loss of the public trust.
When One Employee Post Or Tweet Can Permanently Destroy A Person's Reputation Worldwide, Courts Reject These Excuses...
> We have never been sued before, so we didn't think expert training was necessary. We handed out a policy, that's enough.

> We thought our attorney was an expert in all liability issues and we didn't need an outside expert.

> We can't afford $9 per person and a one- time $297 portal set-up fee.

It's U.S. Supreme Court And Federal Law,
Verbal Warnings To Employees Doesn't
Qualify As Adequate 1983 Training.
The U.S. Supreme Court now classifies Social Media and Smartphones as "high liability broadcasting tools that warrant expert social media and smartphone liability training. The trainer must be an outside social media law expert.
The new supreme court decisions classifying social media and smart phones as "high liability" broadcasting tools completely changes the 1983 training standard. You must show proof that all employees received expert liability training.
Legal Authority : Social Media and Smartphones Are High Risk Platforms:  Packingham v. North Carolina 137 S. Ct. 1730 (2017), Riley v. California 134 S. Ct. 2473 (2014), Elonis v. U.S. 135 S. Ct. 2001 (2015),
42 U.S. 1983, City of Canton, Ohio v. Harris 489 U.S. 378 (1989)
Courts: Your Social Media Policy Isn't Worth The Paper It's Written On Without Proof That You Enforced The Policy With Expert Social Media Liability Training For All Employees, Not Just The PIOs.
Courts: Employees Use Personal Devices For Work Without Much Oversight. This Creates A Dangerous Training Gap. That's Why Courts Demand You Show Proof That All Employees Received Expert Social Media Liability Training...
New Federal Standard

Courts reject verbal warnings as adequate training. You must show proof that all employees received expert training from an outside social media law attorney.
You're Not Saving Money By Refusing To Get Help From A Top Social Media Attorney, Your Placing Your Firefighters, Organization, And Taxpayers At Legal Risk...
T he Day Of Reckoning Comes When Your
Social Media Policy And Training Is Tested In Court
How Do You Explain To A Judge That You Couldn't Afford $9 Per Person To Give All Your Employees Expert Social Media Liability Training From A Nationally Recognized Social Media Attorney?
To win a 1983 inadequate training lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove you showed "deliberate indifference" to properly training employees. My expert online course operates to defeat that claim. Why would you purchase a specialized course to train all employees you didn't care?
3 Truths That Keep You Out Of Court

  • This is high liability specialized training, courts don't recognize busy in-house attorneys as social media law experts. That's why they use my expert online course to train all their employees.

  • Having an attorney isn't a green light to stay unaware of the new social media speech laws. An attorney can't help you after your post reached millions and is now a permanent digital footprint.

  • Most social media harmful comments are adjudicated as intentional, not accidental. Insurance doesn't cover intentional or malicious acts. You will be held personally liable and pay out of pocket for legal damages.
"Mark, your program was great. Being aware of the hidden liabilities not discussed in other courses saves you big legal fees and your image."

Here's 4 Reasons 99% Of In-House Social Media Training And Policies Fail In Court...

  • The training doesn't comply with new 1983 federal standards. The course consists of verbal warnings instead of specialized training by a social media law expert.

  • The instructor couldn't prove in court that he or she was an experienced social media law expert. Courts don't recognize busy in-house attorneys as social media law experts.

  • No proof that the social media policy was enforced with specialized training from a top social media attorney.

  • Social Media policy is too vague and doesn't meet the new federal Liverman policy standards.
If you can't afford my online course registration fee of $9 per person and a one-time portal set-up fee of $297, I would strongly advise your agency to immediately stop sponsoring and using social media, texting, email, and other digital media.
"Social Media Attorney Fiedelholtz proved today that if you don't have a social media law expert train your employees in social media legal risks, you put your employees and your organization at risk."

When Firefighter Makes A Social Media Mistake, They Hire Aggressive Attorneys Who Hold You  Personally Liable For Superficial Verbal Warnings And Using Boilerplate Policies That Don't Hold Up In Court...
Plaintiffs prove firefighters weren't trained on: 

  • New laws on social media libel
  • New laws on social media privacy
  • New laws on social media speech
  • New laws on copyright infringement
  • New laws on cyber-harassment
If You Refuse To Comply With The New Federal Social Media Training Standards, Did You At Least Tell The Firefighters...
They will be sued personally for social media mistakes under 42 U.S.C. 1983 and may have to pay legal damages out of pocket?
They won't receive "Qualified Immunity" because their posts or tweets were against people that are protected by clearly established federal or constitutional law?
They won't receive insurance coverage because most social media cases are adjudicated as intentional conduct; insurance excludes claims that are adjudicated as intentional or malicious conduct. Even if the claim is covered, the premiums will go through the roof which impacts the taxpayer.
