We’re just updating our handbook and want to add something in about use of social websites like facebook outside of work. We already have a robust policy on IT use within work time, but I want to put something about comments made about the company or its employees in any shape or form should not be allowed. I’ve seen a couple of disciplinary cases on this already and we’re also in the middle of one. My concern is that where do we draw the line? Clearly many colleagues are also friends and so are likely to be on sites together and could be saying anything non work related about each other that we wouldn’t want to take action against!

Anyone with a good policy please
