New technology, and case law developing around it, are affecting how employers should handle employment issues, and creating potential new rights and claims for employees.  Attorneys handling these issues need to be up to date on how these new developments impact their practice and their clients.

 

This seminar will address the ways in which technology is impacting employment law and shaping potential new claims and liabilities.  Lawyers representing management need to know how to help their clients avoid these new claims and liabilities, while employees’ lawyers must be aware of potential new rights of their clients.

 

Specific Topics will include:

  • Distracted driving and employer liability—how smart phones, texting and email is creating significant employer liability, and what employers can do about it.
  • Is the tide turning—new developments in employee electronic privacy
  • Legal implications of social networking
  • Smart phones, VPNs, and working at home creating new claims for employees
