HR's E-Monitoring Rules And Rights: Mastering E-Mail, IMs, Blogs, And Social Networking
|Date / Time:
In the digital age of smartphones and 24/7 connectivity to the workplace, electronic monitoring of employee technology use may seem like an attractive option, particularly when they use employer property. But to what point? What are the legal limits for just how far you can go to track Internet and e-mail usage, especially when not every employee works on site?
As an employer, you've got some legal leeway to monitor, but it only goes so far before you're invading an employee's privacy and sparking a lawsuit. On the other hand, if you never check in at all, you could be held liable if an employee uses your technology to act illegally - such as by using an employer-issued smartphone to send harassing messages.
With blogs, Tweets, and status updates becoming part of the normal routine for most people, it's crucial for you to understand what you can and can't do to monitor your employees in order to keep your organization productive and decrease the likelihood of a lawsuit.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- How far the federal laws governing your right to electronically monitor employees' activities will let you legally go
- Types of electronic monitoring and surveillance techniques that are generally acceptable and the ones you should absolutely steer clear of given the current legal and legislative landscape
- Written e-monitoring and privacy policies to give to your employees and how to draft them so they cover emerging technologies
- NLRA-based considerations to take into account before disciplining employees for their online activities
- The legal steps you can take when you believe an employee is stealing confidential data via electronic devices
- Strategies to follow so your organization can demonstrate that it "owns" log-in information, passwords, and organization social-networking accounts
- How to protect your organization when employees use their personal tablets, smartphones, and other electronic devices to conduct business for you
- Best practices for obtaining consent for monitoring real-time communications such as phone calls – it differs from state to state
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to monitor your employees' online and electronic activities, balancing their right to privacy with your right to protect your organization's interests. Register now for this must-attend event risk-free.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|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.
