Seventh Law and Information Society Symposium
March 19, 2013
Privacy and Employment in the Digital Society
As social networking usage steadily increases and a new digital generation enters the workforce, employers are confronted with questions about how employees' personal use of new technology impacts business interests. However, monitoring, screening and regulating employee online behavior raises privacy and social concerns. This conference will examine the tensions and issues that arise in the employment context as a result of new technologies. Panels will explore both how the law should evolve to address the new issues and what the social and privacy implications are for the various options available.
