Virtually every employee carries in his or her pocket, and brings into work, a smartphone, tablet or other device. These are often used for mixed work and personal purposes. With their easy and multifaceted communications capabilities, these devices have the potential to increase efficiency and effectiveness at work. But these devices can also hinder productivity, become the platform for improper or even illegal activity, compromise employer trade secrets and expose employers to liability. Monitoring employee use of these devices, in the hope of diminishing the risk of liability or the loss of productivity, however, exposes employers to the risk of liability for invasions of privacy. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the major issues and points of potential liability in the new world where employees bring their own devices to work.
