Don’t Look Here or Here: Workplace Privacy

August 23, 2019

Depending on your perspective, expanding technology may be wonderful or awful.  Employers seem to be embracing the ability to closely monitor employees work production, proper use of employer equipment and time worked.  Sometimes employers go further and track employee’s locations and social media activity.  In response, employees are increasingly pursuing legal protection of their privacy through litigation and demanding new legislation.  To complicate matters, new legal guidelines regarding privacy are being passed at federal, state and even the municipal levels.  Some mandates actually require employers to monitor and track employees’ work activities.  As such, employers must be keenly aware of where their employees are working and the applicable laws and ordinances.  Keeping policies and procedures up to date is also an ongoing challenge.  This dynamic workshop will present current legal trends and the general issues and legal mandates affecting employers.  

Topics to be covered:

  • Commonly encountered laws regulating privacy
  • Cases affecting employers’ ability to monitor employees
  • Common problems experienced by employers
  • Drafting of policies to pass legal scrutiny 
  • Review of discussion scenarios and commonly asked questions
