10.05.11 SOCIAL MEDIA USAGE POLICY
Frontier recognizes the importance of social media for its employees. However, the use of social media by employees may become a problem if, among other possibilities, it: 1) interferes with the employee's work; 2) is used to harass co-workers or customers; 3) creates a hostile work environment; 4) harms the goodwill and reputation of Frontier among its customers or the community at large; 5) violates, or may lead to violation, of the law (e.g. securities law, intellectual property rights, misappropriation of trade secrets, etc.); or 6) compromises the relationship between Frontier and third parties (e.g. breach of confidentiality or contract). Common sense rules: if you would not want any co-worker or any manager/Supervisor reading your post, then don't publish it.
Frontier encourages employees to use social media according to the following guidelines, and in a way that does not produce the adverse consequences mentioned above. Violation of this policy may lead to discipline up to and including the immediate termination of employment. All Frontier social media policies are meant to supplement Frontier's existing policies regarding both employee conduct and computer usage. The Employee Handbook should always be the first reference for questions on these matters. The social media policy is meant to provide both clarification and guidance for activity in the social media realm. Where no policy or guideline exists, employees are expected to use their professional judgment and take the most prudent action possible. Further, employees should check with their managers or Supervisors if they are uncertain about the appropriateness of a social media posting or a particular use of social media.
NOTE: As used in this policy, “social media” includes, but is not limited to, online forums such as blogs and social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and MySpace.
