Smartphones, Tablets and Other Devices in the Workplace (Live Replay from June 4, 2021)

Description

Most employees carry with them powerful devices – smartphone and tablets – that they use for mixed personal and professional use. These devices can enhance or hinder productivity. Their powerful communications capabilities enable a range of activity which potentially exposes employers to liability.

Employers struggle with crafting policies that allow employees autonomy to use their devices and even channel them to productive work use, but limit their exposure to liability, including allegations that employers are invading the privacy of employees.

This program provides a practical guide to drafting policies for using smart devices on the job.

  • Monitoring workplace usage and potential violations/liability for invasions of privacy
  • Wage and hour issues – when does the workday begin and end when employees are never disconnected?
  • EEO violations, discrimination and harassment risks when devices are used for mixed professional/personal use
  • Obtaining digital evidence from employee devices – what's allowed, what's not?
  • Best practices in preserving employer trade secret issues
