Privacy & Technology

Outten & Golden attorneys know the laws protecting employees’ text messages and are experienced in helping employees challenge their employer’s unlawful access or use of personal text messages. Statutes like the Stored Communications Act (SCA) limit employers’ ability to access employee text messages or obtain their text message content from third party mobile phone service providers. Other laws protect certain types of employee personal data, including text message content, and place restrictions on what employers may do with it. Whether an employer unlawfully accessed, obtained, or used an employee’s text message, we help employees protect their personal text messages.
