privacy rights

Outten & Golden attorneys are knowledgeable in advising employees regarding their privacy rights in the workplace and the limitations on those rights. 

Private sector employees typically have little protection against unreasonable searches by their employers. However, technology-related searches raise privacy concerns that may receive greater protection under the law. For example, in some cases, employers’ background checks, computer-use monitoring, or other internet searches are unlawful. Outten & Golden attorneys help employees and prospective employees understand what their rights are and can help them when those rights are breached.
