L&E Evolution Part III: Managing employees in a digital age

March 8th, 2019  |  Lorene Park

By Lorene D. Park, J.D.

In this third Special Briefing in a series by Employment Law Daily, Senior Employment Law Analyst Lorene D. Park examines technology-driven changes in hiring practices, policies on employee communications and use of technology, privacy concerns, cybersecurity, and more.

Highlights of this Special Briefing include:

  • Recruiting through social media, AI, and mobile technology
  • Accessibility and ADA considerations
  • Cybersecurity, breach notification, and trade secret considerations
  • The ECPA, SCA, CFAA, Wiretap Act, and other privacy laws
  • Expanded NLRA protections for new technology and modes of communication
  • Computer-use and electronic communication policies
  • Social media issues, including ownership of Twitter and Facebook accounts, harassment, and workplace policy violations
  • Surveillance of employees, including keylogging; screen capturing, GPS tracking; microchipping; biometric timekeeping; and more

As with the first briefing, which covered changes in the employment relationship and who is liable as an “employer,” and the second briefing, which covered the evolution of discrimination and other claims under Title VII, USERRA, the ADA, the ADEA, and other federal laws, this briefing on tech-driven changes in the workplace provides practical advice for minimizing liability, given the changing realities of the workplace.
