Bring Your Own Devices – Just Don’t Bring Me A Lawsuit!
In today’s workplace employees often bring their own smartphones, tablets and laptops to work and/or use these devices for business both during and outside of work. While “bring your own device” policies might seem to present cost savings and convenience for employers, California requires that employers reimburse employees for the use of their personal devices for business. Recent changes in the law have only strengthened these obligations and these devices can create big liability for employers. In addition, the devices also pose a challenge for employers because they grant employees access to confidential company data that they may take with their devices when they leave your employment and the devices may create “off the clock work” claims for employees who use their devices while away from the workplace. This presentation will address the current state of the law regarding such devices and how to minimize the risks of employees’ use of their own devices at work as well as policies and practices you may want to implement to minimize liability.
