Megan M. Ruwe Quoted in Business Journal Article On Lawsuit Concerning LinkedIn
Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., employment law lawyer Megan M. Ruwe
discusses social networking in a recent Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal
article. The article, “Non-solicit suit alleges violations on LinkedIn,” looks at a recent lawsuit alleging a former employee violating noncompete and non-solicit agreements. Megan, who isn’t involved in the lawsuit, gives her insights on how social networking can play a role in employment issues. “Having the LinkedIn account, having those people on it may not in itself be a violation, but it’s what you do with it,” Megan said. “If you can’t call someone and say it, and you can’t send a letter and say it, then you shouldn’t be doing it on LinkedIn” (Qtd. in Hammerand).
