Speaker: Jeffrey A. Dretler - Partner - Fisher & Phillips LLP, Boston

 

Highlights: Employers learned long ago that it is wise to establish written policies which set forth the standards of conduct expected of their employees in the workplace. However, advances in technology and changes in workplace dynamics have increased the ease and ability of employers to monitor or otherwise become aware of the off-duty conduct of their employees. Can an employer establish and enforce policies that dictate what its employees can and cannot do outside working hours and off-premises? This program will explore the rights of employers, employees and unions with respect to the hottest “off-duty” conduct issues impacting the workplace today.
