New Employment Laws to Look Out for in 2021

Federal Bar Association/myLawCLE

2:00 pm – 3:00 p.m. E.T.

Sheppard Mullin Speakers: 
Stephen Gallagher

COVID-19 has upended traditional work environments and forced many to rethink how to communicate and collaborate while working remotely. As a result, many employees have embraced new communication platforms, sometimes more rapidly than their employers, and left behind their employers’ retention and privacy policies. Because no two communication tools are exactly alike, various platforms have different retention and privacy features that may present varying types and levels of risk to employers, their employees, and other stakeholders such as board members. This CLE will discuss key issues companies and their counsel might consider when it comes to communication tools to help avoid loss of data, regulatory risk, and legal liability.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • What are risks from an employee using communication tools not authorized by an employer?
  • What are ways that communication tools differ as to retention and security controls?
  • What are actions you can take to reduce a company’s risk?
