Crafting Appropriate Policies and Procedures on Employee Personal Property in the Workplace

Safety and security in the workplace, both physical and virtual, has become a growing concern for U.

S. employers. For these reasons, employers must understand their rights with respect to workplace searches and employee privacy. This OnDemand Webinar will assist employers with respect to all aspects of privacy in the workplace as it pertains to employee personal property, and why employers should develop policies relating to employee personal property in the workplace. This OnDemand Webinar will address "hot topics" such as laws relating to weapons and firearms in the workplace, alcohol and drug possession, personal safety issues, electronic "privacy", as well as generally debunking myths regarding employees' expectation of privacy in the workplace. This program is critical for employers that wish to understand workplace privacy and how to act prudently, while complying with applicable federal, state and local law. Beyond discussing how to craft policies to protect employers, the OnDemand Webinar will cover trends in personal property policies and offer case studies to highlight this important topic.
