Speaker, Gibbons Employment & Labor Law Webinar Series, "What Happens in the Workplace Does Not Always Stay in the Workplace: What Employers Need to Know About Workplace Recordings, Theft of Confidential Information by Employees, and the Self-Help Doctrine"
May 13, 2020 | 4:00 PM - May 13, 2020 | 5:00 PM EST
Technology has made it easier than ever for employees, without permission, to collect, copy, and record employer information while in the workplace. The consequences are particularly troubling when the information being collected not only is confidential, but is collected in the course of “self-help discovery” to be used to support an employee’s legal claims against his or her current or former employer. Despite these challenges, employers are not without recourse. This webinar will explore the current law with respect to workplace recordings and the self-help doctrine. Panelists will also discuss effective workplace policies to prevent theft of confidential information, along with litigation strategies to mitigate losses in the event such information is improperly taken for self-help purposes.
