On Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. Central, Laura Maechtlen and Michele Haydel Gehrke will present the webinar Bring Your Own Device Policies.  As employees have widely adopted personal mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, there has been a parallel trend of employers allowing (or requiring) their employees to use their own personal mobile devices at work.  This “Bring Your Own Device,” or “BYOD” movement, can provide benefits to employees and employers such as convenience, greater flexibility and productivity, as well as cost savings.  However, BYOD programs can also create risks for employers.  In this webinar, we hope to cover some topics to consider when adopting a BYOD policy.  We also provide some recommendations to help mitigate these risks.

The topics being presented during this webinar include:

  • Wage and Hour Issues
    • Off-the-Clock Work
    • Reimbursement of Employee Expenses
  • Data Security Issues
  • BYOD Policies in a Unionized Workforce
  • Intellectual Property Issues
  • Implementation/Training/Compliance
  • Employee Privacy Concerns
  • Additional Concerns



There is no cost to attend this program, however, registration is required.
