Unauthorized Access to Work Technologies
Sidney L. Gold & Associates are well aware of the unlawful practices some employers use to charge employees with unauthorized access to work technology. These employers have hidden behind the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to accuse employees of violating company policies for computer access, or to retaliate against an employee who reports unlawful or inappropriate practices of the employer. Other employers have used their own computer networks and systems to access employee email and social media sites that are password protected.
The federal Stored Communications Act (SCA) protects an employee from employers who abuse their power and resources to access personal information and communications stored on the internet. The employment lawyers in Philadelphia at Sidney L. Gold & Associates use their knowledge and experience in employment law to defend their clients’ rights to privacy and technology. We help employees hold their employers accountable for unauthorized access or use of workplace technology and claim the compensation they are entitled to under the law.
