Workplace Terms of Use

All Memorial Health (MH) employees new to Workplace by Facebook must acknowledge they have read and understood this document by accepting the below terms and conditions at sign-up.

MH Workplace by Facebook service (the “Service”) is a tool you can use to communicate with other MH associates using social media. The Service is not connected in any way to your personal Facebook account.

MH is providing this Service to give our employees another avenue to communicate with each other. Workplace is not mandatory to use as part of your job. It is highly encouraged that you use this tool. If you opt to use the Service, you are agreeing to the terms listed in this document. Employees are expected to actively use this tool to send and receive internal communication via their MH computer. Downloading the complimentary Workplace and Workplace Chat mobile apps on employees’ personal devices is voluntary. Any use on a mobile device should be in compliance with the MH Mobile Device Policy, including but not limited to having a username and password on the mobile device.
