Overview: The webinar will cover a host of issues concerning when employers' rights in investigating their employees' conduct conflicts their employees' right to privacy. Can you search your employee's desk or locker? Can you search your employee's briefcase/purse? Can you search emails or monitor voice mails? What about video monitoring? What about that GPS tracker you have under those who are out in the field? What investigatory techniques can you use to investigate possible fraudulent workers' compensation claims or possible abuse of your leave policies? When can your investigatory techniques land you in court (or have landed other employers in court)?
Why should you attend: In the age of the digital world, employers have more and more tools to "spy" on what their employees are doing - both on the job and off the job. Employees are increasingly filing suits claiming that employers are "crossing the line." Employers claim they have are just making sure employees are where they are supposed to be, investigating possible fraudulent workers' compensation claims or leave abuse, investigating misconduct, etc. What are employer rights? And when do employers cross the line?
