LinkedIn group policy

Membership

The group is strictly for members and staff only. All membership requests are screened and validated, this can cause a timelag in processing membership requests to join the group at peak times. Membership of the group is not available to students. Group membership is open to members of other GAA Chartered Accountancy bodies provided under mutual recognition.

Discussions

Discussions are questions/ideas that clearly invite member responses related to the posted content. Inappropriate postings:

  • Materials in breach of our moderation policy
  • Harassing, abusive, or threatening, attacking individuals or groups,
  • Derogatory, unprofessional, or disrespectful (we remind members that LinkedIN postings are a permanent record)
  • Multi-level marketing or other pyramid scheme offers
  • Non-salary bearing jobs

Job Posting

Job posting in the main discussion area is not permitted. Jobs are defined as actual salary-bearing job opportunities. Career advice and market update information of interest is defined as discussion board content. Job posts posted in the main discussion area will be deleted without warning. Repeat offenders will be blocked from the group.

Self-Monitoring the Group - Flagging Inappropriate Content

All members have the option to flag content as inappropriate to the Group moderators via LinkedIn. Moderators will evaluate flagged content and take appropriate action. Posts that are flagged 5 times will be automatically deleted by LinkedIn. A member that has had their content flagged will require moderation on all future posts in this group, ie they will not be able to post directly. Repeat inappropriate flagged content offenders will be documented and removed from the group.

Note: Under LinkedIn user terms, if you have had your content flagged elsewhere on LinkedIn or have been removed from another LinkedIn group you will automatically see you discussions put into ‘requires moderation’ in this group.
