Media law guru Emma Sadleir warns employees online that there are many potential events that could bring a company into disrepute.

Sandton-based law firm Bowman Gilfillan says Adam Anderson has agreed to step down from his management role as Head of Litigation.

Anderson was caught on camera dumping his dead family dog on the side of street in a Johannesburg suburb earlier this month.

He has also been placed on special leave to allow him time to deal with the consequences of his actions.

Bowman Gilfillan said in a statement that his behaviour was not reflective of the firm's culture and values. Initially, the company had claimed the incident was a personal matter.

Meanwhile, the SPCA is pursuing illegal dumping charges.

Media law consultant Emma Sadleir warns that all employees associated with their company online should ensure that they don't jeopardise their employer's reputation.

My strong view is that there is no such thing as personal capacity on social media. You are who you are in the real world when you are online.

Emma Sadleir, Social media law expert

Every time somebody messes up, it's the companies reputation that takes the knock.

Emma Sadleir, Social media law expert

Bringing a company into disrepute is actually a broad category.

She discusses social media law, and where personal and professional lives intersect.
