    Under employment law, is an employer able to govern who you are seen with and associate with outside of work hours and business?

    A case found last year that employers have the right to attempt to protect its security and reputation by limiting employees use of social media beyond strict working hours, so maybe if there is some legitimate business reason for the decision they might be able to prevent you from seeing someone. Not entirely sure.

    Hi Lachlan,

    Can you give more information about who your company has asked you not to associate with and why?
