Mobile Workplace: Best Practices and Protecting Your Company
According to one study, nearly 90% of all U.S. employers rely upon their employees to use their own personal electronic devices for work. While there is a distinct advantage of allowing employees the freedom to have workplace mobility in terms of production and responsiveness to customers, there are also a number of challenges for companies in implementing and monitoring this. And, while most employers know they have (or need) both a social media policy as well as an electronic device policy (or BYOD), employers face difficult challenges with these policies both from an enforcement perspective as well as intense scrutiny by governmental agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor. Because workplace mobility and the BYOD is not going away, this live and interactive webinar will discuss the trends on the use of personal electronic devices for workplace mobility and potential issues facing employers, including potential loss of confidential, trade secret business information, non-competition and non-solicitation challenges, and how to handle a departing employee. This webinar will outline how to create an effective social media and BYOD policies (and agreements) and how to enforce those policies without creating litigation or agency charges.
