Privacy Issues in the Workplace

Date(s):
March 24, 2022
Venue:
Online
Description:

Who Should Attend:

General managers, HR professionals, and anyone who wants to truly understand the complexities of dealing with privacy issues in the workplace.

Webinar Overview:

Although privacy is a dynamic issue of growing concern in essentially every modern workplace, there is still no single comprehensive law governing workplace privacy. Instead, privacy in the workplace is more of a patchwork quilt coming under a variety of laws covering recruitment; medical inquiries; background and misconduct investigations; monitoring and surveillance; honesty; psychological, drug, and alcohol testing; medical and personnel records; off-duty conduct; employer information; etc. So it’s all the more reason to attend this webinar to learn about where the boundary lines are in this rapidly growing area of concern and what is and is not permissible. 

Webinar Recordings:

Webinar recordings can be made available to registrants who are unable to attend live.

Webinar Instructor:

Bob Oberstein, CLRP, IPMA-SCP, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, Retired Labor Relations Manager, Snohomish County PUD No. 1
