Stored Communications Act

Privacy & Technology

The (SCA) protects employees’ personal electronic communications stored with third-party internet service providers and social media sites from unauthorized access by employers. The SCA prohibits employers from forcing employees to disclose their login information to personal email or social media site accounts and from accessing employees’ accounts without their permission. The SCA also makes it unlawful for an employer to obtain an employee’s personal communications from an internet service provider without the employee’s authorization.
