It is a new world out there, and managers and HR need to be aware that with new technology comes with new risks. Can recordings, monitoring, tapping hurt your organization, and what can you as an employer do to safeguard yourself from laws. Employees can easily record every conversation they have with management with a quick tap of their smartphones. Can you have a policy prohibiting this, and what might that policy include? Is an employee’s recording of your conversation lawful? Is it admissible in a court of law and can it be used against you? Would telling employees that they cannot record your conversation violate any laws? If so, which ones?
Another issue that employers often wonder about is an employer’s right to view text messages that an employee sends. Can an employer read an employee’s e-mail? Can a supervisor listen in on conference calls without announcing him or herself? Could that violate the employee’s right to privacy? Could it violate any other laws, federal or state? What policies does HR have to implement to protect your organization with regard to these issues?
Please join legal expert, Melissa Fleischer, Esq. as she clears up these questions and more in this informative and relevant webinar.
