The use of communication technologies have exploded at work.  While the Internet has become indispensable in today's workplace - 90 million US workers send over one billion e-mail messages a day - newer technologies, such as instant messaging and social networks  have created new and perplexing legal issues for employers. This live 3-hour seminar led by John Sarno, Esq. will provide an up-to-date summary of this important and evolving area of HR law.  Cases that will be covered include:

  • City of Ontario v. Quon: “Sexting” at work.
  • American Medical Response of Connecticut, NLRB: Legally protected employee speech on the Internet.
  • Roe v. City of San Diego: Off duty Internet porn.
