Social Media Checks
Social Media is a complex issue in employment today, and the lines between privacy and employer rights can be quite blurred.
Generally, any information that is in the public domain is not considered private under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Act), and it has been well tested in the courts that employers do have rights in terms of social media commentary that is in the public domain.
TalentScreen Social Media Checks typically checks FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. We search for commentary by topic, depending on our client's objectives.
Popular Social Media Check commentary topics include drug use, criminal behaviour, politics, and animal welfare as examples.
