Computer Use and Access
Sidney L. Gold & Associates embrace technology and work constantly to keep current with emerging laws that protect computer privacy and access. Employers can bring suit against an employee for unauthorized access to company computers or files under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). Employees can be held liable for civil penalties under the CFAA and should rely on the services of a competent and experienced employment law attorney for their defense in matters pertaining to privacy and technology.
In some cases, employees have brought suit against an employer who unlawfully charged them with computer fraud or access in retaliation for the employee reporting inappropriate or unethical behavior of the employer. In this case, employees may be able to collect compensation for damages under the CFAA. It is imperative to have a knowledgeable employment lawyer in Philadelphia by your side to enable you to collect what you are legally entitled to receive.
