Technology has become the No. 1 new employment law risk to American employers, and the growth of social media and personal tech devices – smartphones, iPads, laptops – has taken that risk to a whole new level.
That’s why it’s critical to establish and enforce realistic (and legal) limitations on employees’ use of their own computers, tablets, smartphones, email, social media accounts, and other forms of technology – whether they’re used in the workplace, on the road or at home.
This Business Management Daily webinar is your common-sense, practical workshop on the best practices and potential liability.
Topic: The Wired Workplace: How to Set Policies – and Limit Liability – for Employees’ Use of Smartphones, iPads, and Social Media
Date: Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Time: 1 p.m. EST, 12 p.m. CST, 10 a.m. PST
During this session, you will learn:
- How to create specific, smart policies on employees’ use of their own and company equipment – both on and off the job.
- The risks associated with new tech devices, in terms of the loss of proprietary information, legal liability, harassment, and more.
- How to avoid today’s most popular overtime lawsuit: off-the-clock work involving smartphones and laptops.
- How to preserve trade secrets and confidential information in the digital age. (Did you know that one-third of companies last year experienced “exposure” incidents compromising company data on sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn?)
- How to investigate inappropriate conduct involving technology devices and Facebook accounts owned by an employee.
- The latest court rulings that spell out the privacy rights you must extend to employees and applicants.
This is no theoretical discussion. Prominent employment law attorney Suzanne Martin of Ogletree Deakins will explain the concrete, legally safe steps that every employer should take to minimize the legal risks. Every attendee will receive a companion 49-page booklet that’s packed with advice on the topic and includes sample policies that you can adapt in your workplace. Plus, Suzanne will answer your specific questions about this confusing and timely topic during the Q&A session.
According to a recent study, companies that monitor employee email report that about 25% of outgoing email contains content that could pose a legal, financial, or regulatory risk. Don’t leave your company open to such a legal disaster. Click here to register now!
