Safety and security in the workplace, both physical and virtual, has become a growing concern for U.S. employers. For these reasons, employers must understand their rights with respect to workplace searches and employee privacy. This audio conference will assist employers with respect to all aspects of privacy in the workplace as it pertains to employee personal property, and why employers should develop policies relating to employee personal property in the workplace.
