Confidential Personnel Information in the Workplace
Attorneys Linda McGill and Matthew Tarasevich, shareholders in Berstein Shur’s Labor and Employment Practice Group, hosted a presentation on confidential information in the workplace at the Maine State Bar Association’s summer meeting. Topics covered:
• Acquiring personal personnel information in the workplace
• Current laws regarding confidential employee information
• Legal issues surrounding personnel files
• New regulations and trends affecting employers’ access to and disclosure of information
Over the course of employment businesses acquire, generate and maintain significant personal information on both applicants and employees. In the digital age, when employers are able to collect more information than ever, but are under increasing pressure to protect that information, it is important for attorneys to know the legal landscape of managing personal personnel information.
