DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES – SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES
I write further to my previous circular on the above matter (Ref: IR/051/13, 17th January 2013) in which I requested examples of where members had been disciplined following complaints made about them on social networking sites.
While no responses were received, the General Grades Committee took a recent decision to remain vigilant on this matter as it is clear that social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter can be dangerous tools for companies to be used against our members.
I would therefore ask members to continue to be wary with regards to this matter and report any abuses which arise.
