In a time where employees are using personal devices and cell phones for work, and employers permit employees to use computer and phone systems for “incidental” personal reasons, confusion can arise over who owns the devices or the information transmitted over the device. This confusion can create liability and potential problems for employers, such as whether an employer is obligated to pay for any part of an employee’s personal phone, and what devices and information must be provided by the employer in a lawsuit. Please join us for an informative overview of the potential dangers and strategies employers may be able to use to help manage these pitfalls and risks.
