Don’t Miss! Dave Druzynski to Present “Social Media in Hiring and Employment” in a Free Automotive News Webinar

Mark your calendars! Dave Druzynski, Auto/Mate’s Director of Human Resources, will be presenting a FREE Automotive News Power Training Webinar titled “Social Media in Hiring and Employment.” The webinar is scheduled for next Wednesday, January 20th, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. EST.


“If any employee or hiring manager at a dealership has ever ‘Googled’ a job applicant or checked out their Facebook profile, this webinar will be eye-opening,” said Druzynski. “Viewing a job applicant’s social media profile online gives access to information that is protected by law, such as age, race or disabilities. If not done correctly, dealerships may have trouble defending themselves in a discrimination lawsuit.”


Phil Nussel, Online Editor at Automotive News, will moderate the webinar where attendees will learn:


  1. The current laws that impact a dealership’s use of social media as it relates to job applicants and the hiring process
  2. The current laws that impact employees’ use of social media and dealerships’ policies when it comes to disciplining and/or firing current employees for inappropriate social media postings
  3. How courts are currently interpreting these laws and how they affect dealers’ decision making
  4. How to craft a social media policy that will allow a dealership to take advantage of the tools available to them while remaining out of legal trouble


Druzynski presents a lively and informative look at the legal implications of social media usage in the workplace.


The Automotive News webinar is FREE for dealership personnel to attend and is scheduled for January 20th, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. EST. To register, click here. For more information, contact Auto/Mate at 518-371-4331.
