Invasion Of Privacy

Outten & Golden attorneys are skilled at helping employees respond to an employer’s invasion of their rights to technological privacy. We help employees identify whether and how their privacy has been invaded and the best course of action based on each employee’s specific case.

Statutes like the Stored Communications Act (SCA) limit employers’ ability to access employees’ electronic communications, including those made via employers’ computer systems or other electronic devices. Other laws protect specific types of employee personal data and place restrictions on what an employer may do with it. If an employer unlawfully accessed or used an employee’s personal data, the experienced attorneys at Outten & Golden can help defend the employee against unlawful invasion of privacy.
