Employers need to get their employees to take action, but they still need privacy protections to ensure employees aren’t forced to share their personal information on social media.

Here are some of the top stories of the week:–A group of companies that operate as technology companies and social media companies has begun offering their workers to use an online service to allow employees to report problems to their employers.

The move follows a recent announcement by the University of Michigan that it will use a new online enrollment system for football and women’s basketball starting in 2019.
