By Jerome Doraisamy|17 May 2019

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Swaab partner Michael Byrnes.

Israel Folau’s ongoing battle with Rugby Australia, regarding the posting of his religious views on Instagram, gives rise to the question: to what extent can lawyers engage in personal discussions when it comes to politics, religion, or even transparent disclosures about mental health issues? Don’t miss Jerome’s conversation with returning guest Michael Byrnes about how much a legal employer can regulate the social media activity of an employee, and what we can learn from recent events.
