Legal: Information Technology issues in the Workplace



Mobile phones and computers are now common tools of work for most employees in the modern workplace. In fact, many jobs simply could not be done properly without these resources. While technology may be a necessary part of doing business, there are risks for employers where technology is improperly used by employees. The risks are compounded by the difficulty of scrutinising the flow of information to and from the business. This presentation will address practical steps to manage those risks and to set clear standards and expectations concerning use of technology in the workplace.

The employment law experts at AFEI Legal will explain the benefits of having sound policies in place regarding the use of information technology including computer surveillance. The session will also consider standards for public comment by employees on social media sites and notable cases.
