Protecting the Privacy of Employees' Personal Information
Posted May 15th, 2009 by Ariana R. Levinson
Are you providing advice to employers on maintaining the personal information of employees, such as social security, license, account, or credit card numbers? Or are you advising employees who have lost personal information because of a breach of an employer's system? If so, you may find Joseph J. Lazzarotti's, The Emergence of State Data Privacy and Security Laws Affecting Employers, 25 Hofstra Lab. & Emp. L.J. 483 (2008) helpful. Lazzarotti outlines the laws governing maintenance of personal information. He also outlines the notice requirements that apply in many states when there is a breach of an employer's system of maintaining personal information.
