Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will help you identify scenarios and situations where the law protects an individual’s (employee’s) privacy and how an employer can conduct a lawful investigation without crossing the line of violating their employee’s privacy rights.

Why Should You Attend:

When the employer investigates an employee to determine if misconduct has occurred and what action needs to be taken, he/she must be careful not to violate the employee’s privacy rights. Many legal experts believe that lawsuits claiming that employers have violated employee privacy rights will surpass wrongful termination lawsuits in the 21st Century.

Topic Background:

Most Americans clearly feel that they have a right of privacy outside of work and don’t necessarily feel that they completely lose that right of privacy while at work. Most employers feel they have enough to do at work without worrying about what employees are doing off the clock. But work and privacy life do not necessarily start and end with the time clock. Employees steal from their employers, use drugs at work, fight at work, and engage in other misconduct. Some employees also file fraudulent claims against their employers – claims of illness and seeking FMLA leave or workers’ compensation claims. Employees may engage in other misconduct off the clock that bleeds over into the workplace.
