Workplace Privacy and Bring Your Own Device (Spring Seminar)

Past event

It’s time once again for the Privacy Foundation at University of Denver Sturm College of Law to have its spring seminar! It will be taking place April 20th, from 10:00am-1:00pm (with lunch to follow) at the Ricketson Law Building. The topic is: Workplace Privacy and Bring Your Own Device.

Privacy issues are ever increasingly impacting the workplace. From the rapid growth of employee monitoring technology, to employee (and employer) use of social media (Facebook) and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, human resource managers are needing legal and technical privacy advice.

This Workplace Privacy Seminar will focus on the major privacy issues in the workplace: (1) the legal and technical concerns surrounding employee BYOD policies, i.e., employee access to other employee privacy data and employee use of non-work employee information found on social media via employees’ own smart phones and note books; (2) the “metes and bounds” of employee monitoring, i.e., verbal, written, and electronic communications while working and after hours; and (3) geographic tracking of employees, onsite and after hours.

Each of these privacy issues will be discussed by the privacy panel experts, along with active attendee participation during each Panel discussion.

Location: Ricketson Law Building, Room 290
