Text messaging offers employees a way to quickly obtain information from another source for use in their daily business tasks. Text messaging is also a popular form of communication between colleagues, friends, and family members throughout the work day. The Stored Communications Act (SCA) protects the employee’s text messages from unauthorized access or use by their employer. Sidney L. Gold & Associates are experienced with the SCA and other laws governing the access to and use of text messages and are dedicated to helping employees fully understand their privacy and technology rights and protections under the law.
Employers are in direct violation of the SCA if they gain unauthorized access to an employee’s text messages, or if they unlawfully retrieve the employee’s text messages from their wireless service providers. Our knowledgeable employment lawyers in Philadelphia defend our client’s rights to protect the content and use of their text messages and to hold employers accountable for unauthorized access or use of their text messages.
