FOOD FOR THOUGHT

•Who owns your LinkedIn profile especially when your employer encourages you to use it?
Unlike Facebook, LinkedIn is designed for the purpose of professional networking.

•Do you market your employer on LinkedIn?
If yes, then ordinarily you would have uploaded all your email contacts and invited them to ‘connect with you’ in order to do business.

•Who owns those contacts? You or your employer?

THE ANSWER IS:
•You remployer, especially when the contacts have been accumulated during your employment.
•In Ions/Hays the court’s approach was if MrIons had collected the contacts during the course of your employ then they belong to Hays.
•Mr Ions was ordered to hand over his profile & passwords.
