Finding the delicate balance between an employee's right to privacy and the employer’s need to run its business can be challenging. There are many legitimate reasons that an employer may have for intruding on otherwise “private” matters of employees, such as conducting workplace investigations, responding to agency inquiries or subpoenas, or fulfilling its obligations during discovery in a lawsuit. With the rapid surge in the use of technology and social media in the workplace, the stakes in the workplace privacy arena are becoming even higher for employers.
Please join us for a discussion of what every employer needs to know regarding recent legal developments on select issues in workplace privacy, including:
- Monitoring employee company and personal web-based electronic mail.
- The NLRB's developing case law on disciplining employees based on social media postings.
- Privacy issues presented by Bring Your Own Device policies.
The use of social media in hiring and legal limits on accessing employee social media information.
