Technology’s gift – vast quantities of accessible information – can also be its curse. The ability to marshal and analyze data can lead to greater efficiency, productivity, and profitability. But it can also create new vulnerabilities: for your employees, your customers, and your business. Not surprisingly, in response state and federal authorities have created lots of regulations that impose specific duties on employers to protect particular kinds of information. In addition, employers must face up to the need to protect their own interests in the face of competitive threats.
What must you do to protect other people’s confidential information, and what should you do to protect your own? Join Charlie Einsiedler and Jim Erwin for a look at both sides of the confidentiality coin. We’ll look at employer obligations under statutes such as the ADA, MHRA, HIPAA, GINA, and state personnel file statutes, and in particular what to do with third party subpoenas for confidential information. Then we’ll revisit the use of tools such as confidentiality, non-disclosure, invention, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements, as well as policies, particularly with respect to social media, for protecting your business’ intellectual property.
We’ll also give you a quick overview of the 2012 legislative session, in which employers actually made some gains.
