Social Media Use and Access
Sidney L. Gold & Associates are dedicated to keeping up with the pace of technology and the laws that surround it. Social media has become a common way to communicate, for both business contacts and personal contacts. We are committed to protecting our client’s online information from unauthorized and illegal access by employers. The Stored Communications Act (SCA) protects the right of an employee to refuse to give an employer or potential employer access to their social media sites and other online information. The law protects employees from employers who try to retaliate against them for content on their social media pages, and The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) protects the rights of employees to discuss details relating to their employment with their colleagues on social media sites.
