This program will discuss the various scalable options for employee monitoring, including tools for on-location time tracking, biometric collection for information security, and remote access monitoring tools. Many of these tools attach to programs you probably already use, such as Google®, Microsoft Teams® and many other popular apps.
This program also will explore the legal issues that arise with these tools. Due to the recent proliferation of these technological options, many states are enforcing their existing laws and creating new laws to limit employers’ rights to employee monitoring. Claims such as invasion of privacy, NLRA unfair practices, BIPA violations, federal and state wiretap issues, antidiscrimination laws violations, ECA concerns, and many other claims are arising in the world of employee monitoring. We will take you through the issues, the laws, and the best practices to maximize your use of these tools without getting sued in the process.
