Anderson Authors Second Article in The Forum
May 1, 2008

Jones Walker partner Jennifer L. Anderson authored an article in the April 29, 2008 issue of The Forum, a weekly news publication that covers news and events in the tri-state area of Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Ms. Anderson’s article, titled “Cyber Policies: Social Networking Sites Could Jeopardize Employment,” describes the ways in which employers can take advantage of social networking websites to find out more information about current and prospective employees, including what should be considered in a hiring decision and how to deal with evidence of negative or possibly illegal activity. This was the second article in a series of labor and employment law editorials in The Forum; the column provides businesspeople with updates on changes in labor and employment law and information on how to approach employment issues with preventive measures.

In her practice, Ms. Anderson defends employers in employment-related disputes, counsels employers on the development and administration of sound policies and practices to minimize exposure to litigation, and trains management-level employees on various aspects of labor and employment law.
