Where, when, and how we work has changed profoundly since I started practicing law but employment and privacy laws have not evolved to keep up with technological change and the reality of the “everywhere” workplace.
I would like to think that employment lawyers can provide some practical solutions to addressing policies that help draw the line between personal and business and yet protect valuable business assets.
Social media policies, integrating multi-jurisdictional privacy and employment laws, the gig economy ... all of these developments are impacted by rapid technological change but legal developments have lagged.
Just think about the last "non-traditional" place you worked. In line at the grocery store? In your car? Where is your workplace?
