Episode 18: Use of a Professional’s Social Media History in Registration, Investigations and Professional Misconduct Prosecutions
Jul 9th, 2019 by CLEAR
The approach that regulators have taken regarding social media has evolved over the years, with more regulators conducting social media searches on applicants during the licensing process. Information found on social media can be used to aid an investigation, and the number of investigations that are centered on regulated professionals' misuse of social media has increased. How does this influence public confidence in regulators, and how do regulators take into account public expectations? How do regulators handle social media evidence and commentary during prosecutions? This podcast episode is a lead-in to a session at CLEAR's Annual Educational Conference, September 18-21, 2019 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that will further explore the utility, legality and practicalities of relying on non-traditional sources of information, such as online and social media content, both in the registration process and investigations.
