Management employment lawyers write a great deal about managing your workplace electronic communications and data because the proliferation of electronic devices and remote working has created so many ways to lose vital company data.
I have linked to the blog of employee-side lawyer, Donna Ballman, who writes about ways that employees could circumvent employer efforts to manage data when they maintain “Bring Your Own Device”(BYOD) policies. This gives you an idea of how “the other side” may view employer efforts, and their possible responses.
Your Employer Wants To Erase Your Personal Cell Phone And Computer
Then I saw this advice in a recent blog post:
Address what happens when the employee stops working for your company: As noted above, employers have a duty to safeguard sensitive company data. Therefore, when an employee terminates his or her relationship with the employer, the employer must ensure that all of its data is permanently erased from the employee’s personal devices. Yet, it is often impossible to separate relevant company data from personal employee information when “wiping” a device. Therefore, employers should require that their employees acknowledge and agree that all of the data on their devices will be erased when the employee stops working for the company.
