Privacy and Technology

Privacy and technology issues are ever-evolving areas of employment law.  Technology is evolving at a fast pace, and concerns about employee and employer rights to access personal and professional information are in constant review.  Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates is committed to keeping pace with technology and laws that affect an employee or employer’s rights to access information.

Recent legislation has been enacted and has become a valuable tool in protecting employee and employer privacy.  The Stored Communications Act (SCA) protects an employee’s email and social media sites, such as Facebook or Linkedin, from an employer’s unauthorized access.  The Wiretap Act prevents employers from using spyware to follow an employee’s online activity without their permission.  The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) prevents employees from accessing unauthorized corporate information, or from deleting emails or files without permission from their employer.  In some cases, civil liability and damages can be awarded to employees when an employer violates the SCA or Wiretap Act, which can include recovery of lawyer and court costs.

For more information on privacy and technology, contact the Philadelphia employment lawyers of Sidney L. Gold & Associates at 215-569-1999, or complete our online contact form.
