During the past decade, the typical workplace has witnessed technological advances that are nothing short of astonishing. The days of bulky, noisy typewriters are long gone, and most workplaces now are equipped with sophisticated computers and electronic hardware and software.

Employees are performing and storing their work electronically with access to a world of information at their fingertips. Similarly, employers have access to a wealth of monitoring and tracking technology to verify employees are performing their assigned responsibilities and using technology in an appropriate, lawful manner.

You must, at a minimum, understand the basics of these issues and develop realistic and effective strategies and policies to address them or else expose yourself to liability.
