Unauthorized Access to Personal Technologies
Sidney L. Gold & Associates counsel employees who have been victimized by employers that have gained unauthorized access to their password-protected online communications. Under the federal Stored Communications Act (SCA), employers are prohibited from using their computer networking systems to obtain their employee’s personal login information or access their personal email, social media sites, or other data stored on the internet. In addition to the SCA, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) protects an employee’s right to discuss employment information with their colleagues via social media. Our Philadelphia employment lawyers know the law surrounding unauthorized access to personal technology and are devoted to helping our clients stand up for their rights to use personal technology in the workplace.
