Every day employees bring their devices – smartphones, tablets, and laptops– with them to work. This BYOD (Bring Your Own Device to work) trend has created major legal issues for employers. Employees often use these devices for both personal and work purposes – communicating with friends, work colleagues, and customers and clients. They post personal information and often business information on the Internet. Employers are potentially liable for violations of privacy, commission of torts, discrimination and harassment, the loss of company trade secrets, wage and hour violations, and more. This program will provide you a framework for understanding the legal issues when employers allow employers to bring their own devices to work.
