Dating apps and professional conduct implications

By Tasha Levy|14 February 2020

With the rapid evolution of social media and dating applications, workplace policy relating to employee conduct can become somewhat of a contentious issue whereby the boundaries between one’s professional and personal life are blurred.

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Carly Stebbing, principal and founder of employment law platform Resolution123, to explain how case law has developed around professional implications for personal misconduct, why screenshot capabilities affect what is deemed private and public, and factors that typical workplace policy consider to be breaches of employee conduct.

Carly details distinctions between the LaLegale and Israel Folau cases, how putting one’s views into a public domain differs from sharing personal preferences on a dating app, and provides her recommendations for how lawyers should conduct themselves to avoid any potential professional penalties.
