Managing Employee Privacy Rights: Everything You Need to Know
In the modern workplace, employers must be careful when setting expectations and policies relating to workplace policy, and at the same time be mindful of employee privacy rights. While company policy can dictate many of an employee’s privacy rights, private employers must adhere to certain legal obligations.

Invasion of privacy in the workplace can lead to a plethora of negative consequences, including a hostile, unproductive work environment or even a big lawsuit. Privacy claims must be evaluated carefully on a case-by-case basis within the workplace.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

• What is the “right of privacy” in the workplace
• Key workplace privacy issues to consider when handling medical records and personnel files, accessing social media information, monitoring employee internet usage and emails, conducting background checks, storing biometric data, and implementing drug-testing procedures.
• Types of employer electronic monitoring
• Sources of privacy protections and legal restrictions on workplace monitoring
• Updates on state privacy laws coming into effect in 2023 that might affect employers

This program is valid for 1.00 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
