The Wired Workplace: How To Set Policies — And Limit Liability — For Employees' Use Of Smartphones, iPads And Social Media
|Date / Time:
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.
Join us new webinar and 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, both 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 the employee.
- The latest court rulings that spell out the privacy rights you must extend to employees and applicants.
This is no theoretical discussion. We will explain the concrete, legally safe steps that every employer should take to minimize the legal risks. Plus, he 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.
The bottom line: Technology has increased employers' legal risks. You can do nothing and play lawsuit roulette. Or you can identify the liability holes in your organization and learn how to patch them. Get started by registering now for The Wired Workplace.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
