Title:

Tracking Employee Activity: The Legal Risks And Practical Benefits Of Employee Monitoring Technology

SKU:WC-1023690
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Recent developments in employee monitoring technology means that businesses can now track and monitor employee activities and tasks throughout the day.

What exactly does that entail? The technology is remarkably advanced and it can detect the level of stress reflected in an employee’s voice, read emotions using facial recognition, and predict when truck drivers might fall asleep at the wheel.

While such technology can be of great benefit to employers, the laws have not kept pace. Therefore, if you are interested in using employee monitoring technology at your workplace, you need to be aware of the potential legal risks, even though guidance is still scarce.

  • Will your employees feel like they are constantly being watched?
  • Is this type of monitoring even legal?
  • How can you use the information you collect?
  • What sorts of legal problems can you expose yourself to by gathering this information?
Find out answers to these questions and more when attorneys Stefanie Renaud and Lucas Amodio will explain the legal limitations of employee tracking technology.

Learning Objectives:
  • How to legally use monitoring technology
  • What steps employers should take to ensure legality and guard against risk
  • How the use of fitness wearables exposes employers to some legal risks (for instance, under the Americans with Disabilities Act)
  • Technologies that can be used for tracking employees in and out of the office or worksite
  • Tracking methods that are used in employee-owned devices
  • Ways that the collected data could be misused and thus result in potential legal liabilities for the organization

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.

The live 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.
