Do potential employers have the right to access your social media?

Monday, July 25th, 2016

An increasingly common question I get is “does a prospective employer or your current employer have the right to look at your social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. “ Well that depends on a couple issues. First if your accounts are not set to private a prospective employer or your current employer can check your social media without asking you. According to Career as of 2015 52% of prospective employers check a job applicant’s social media accounts. Obviously, social media accounts promoting illegal activity, drug and alcohol abuse are big turnoffs to employers.   There are many other things that may cause a prospective employer not to hire you. Some of the things are obvious and others are not obvious. Thus it is imperative you set your social media accounts to private when interviewing for a job. Additionally, many employers monitor their current employee’s social media accounts. If you have any content that your employer may find objectionable it is highly recommended that you set your accounts to private at all times. Read More

What happens after I file the claim form?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Your employer must fill out and sign the “employer” portion of the form and give the completed
form to a claims administrator. This person handles workers’ compensation claims for your
employer. (Most claims administrators work for insurance companies or other organizations that
handle claims for employers. Some claims administrators work directly for large employers that
handle their own claims. This person may also be called a claims examiner or claims adjuster.)
Your employer must give or mail you a copy of the completed form within one working day after
you filed it. Keep this copy.
The claims administrator must decide within a reasonable time whether to accept or deny your
claim. Read More
