Workplace Monitoring and Surveillance: Practical Guidance for Employers
The world has become increasingly data-driven: emails, text messages, and videos – and more—abound. Employees and employers alike are leveraging technology both in and out of the workplace to maximize collaboration and efficiency. Many employers even allow employees to communicate with each other using their own personal devices and methods of “offline communications” such as texting, personal email and social media, but at what cost? How do you properly safeguard proprietary and confidential data while also honoring the privacy rights of employees?.
The stakes are high. Employers who overstep with electronic monitoring or take possession of personal devices, run the risk of violating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, (ECPA), the Stored Communications Act (SCA), and other federal and state laws.
Fortunately, in this practical webinar, attorney and employment law expert Janette Levey Frisch will help employees strike the delicate balance act between running a business without undermining personal privacy. The result: A successful business that also protects the rights of employees.
