Employee & Customer Health Data: Back to Work in COVID-19
This webinar is part of NVTC’s “Getting Back to Work” virtual roundtable series

Join the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) for our new “Getting Back to Work” virtual roundtable series that will bring together industry experts, thought leaders, and technology innovators to help Northern Virginia get back to work. This not to be missed series will highlight the building blocks necessary to help companies define their own new normal and create best practices for safely and efficiently getting their employees back to work.

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. Rothwell Figg, a quality-focused intellectual property firm and NVTC member company, offers a unique perspective on privacy risks and complex, high-technology litigation. During this presentation, attorneys from Rothwell Figg will explore 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. The presenters 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.
