Conduct a simple poll (using social media, email, in-person, or via telephone) with the intent to assess the ethical and legal implications of social media and hiring.
These are the questions you should ask:
Should employers research potential hires on social media during the hiring process? Ask respondents why or why not as well.
After you collect the data, prepare an analysis of academic research related to social media and hiring practices and outline the legal issues you could face regarding this topic. Share examples provided that could or did have legal implications for the hiring agency. Compare your findings of the poll results to the academic research and assess recommendations and findings.
