As the workplace extends to non-traditional hours, locations and methods so does the extent to which the lines between personal and company information blur. Whose business is it anyway what an employee does, where, when and with whom?  When do you have a right to search personal and/or company property such as email, desks or vehicles? From personal relationships to tobacco smoking to use of medical marijuana - states are passing “lifestyles” legislation that applies to these issues and more. Join this interactive program presented in mini-case study format as we review the latest news, trends, proactive practices and pitfalls to avoid (exclusive of HIPAA).
