Computer Fraud and Abuse Act

The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) is a federal law that prohibits unauthorized access to a computer or computer network.  Employers can sue employees under CFAA if they can prove that the employee had an intention to defraud the company that resulted in costs of $5,000 or more.   On the other hand, employees may have a claim under CFAA if their employer acted unlawfully in accessing or destroying their personal electronic data, or if the employer brought charges in retaliation for the employee reporting inappropriate activity.
