In a day and age where personal information is shared more widely than ever – through social networks and technological advances – where exactly are the lines drawn in terms of employees’ rights to privacy? California has attempted to confront these concerns by issuing rules regulating an employee’s right to privacy both during a job search and once employed in the workplace. This program will examine what employers need to know about these regulations and similar provisions under federal and state law, and how longstanding privacy rights coexist in today’s advanced technological climate.
