Getting Back to Work Webinar #1
Employee & Customer Health Data: Back to Work in COVID-19
As organizations open their doors again, it’s important that they do so with certain safety measures in place to minimize COVID-19 risks for both employees and customers. With our unique perspective on privacy risks and complex, high-technology litigation, we will explore some safety measures being considered by employers with an eye toward privacy, data protection, and cybersecurity. For example, your workplace may be considering temperature checks to ensure those entering your workplace are temperature free; video monitoring and surveillance to ensure social distancing rules are followed; or questionnaires to evaluate people’s health condition and symptoms, contacts, and travel histories. Attorneys from Rothwell Figg will discuss best practices for obtaining, storing, sharing, and disposing of this data, as well as how organizations can manage workplace privacy and security through the adoption of reasonable and effective practices while at the same time taking measures to protect employees and customers from the transmission of COVID-19.

Speakers:

Martin Zoltick, Shareholder, Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck, P.C.
Jenny Colgate, Partner, Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck, P.C.
Christopher Ott, Partner, Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck, P.C.
