Employees, Social Media, Smartphones, Tablets: Legal Issues for Employers - 1 CLE hour

The way employees communicate with each other, their supervisors, family and friends (while on the job), and with the outside world about their companies and work has changed dramatically in the last several years.  Seemingly everyone carries smartphones in their pockets, tablets in their bags, and all of these devices are hyper-connected through text, voice, and video chat, and again through social media.  What’s an employer to do when employees are immediately interconnected with virtually everyone in the world with a few keystrokes?  On the answer to that question hangs many real-world issues for employers – liability for employee-employee harassment, the validity of workplace investigations, the protection of sensitive employer information, privacy monitoring, and much more. This program will you with a practical guide to the major legal issues for employees involving employee use of smartphones, tablets, social media and other digital media in the workplace.  

  • BYOD – “Bring Your Own Device” to work – smartphones, tablets and social media use by employees in the workplace 
  • Privacy – what can an employee do to monitor employee use without invading their privacy and triggering liability? 
  • Harassment – how use of digital media by employees can tag employer’s for harassment/discrimination liability
  • Investigations – can an employer access employee email, social media and other digital communications? 
  • Usage – what restrictions can and should employers place on employee use of digital devices on the job?
  • Secrets – how do employers prevent disclosure of trade secrets and other sensitive information?
  • Torts – what are emerging social media torts in the workplace?
