Workplace Data: Law and Litigation is a new treatise offering a comprehensive overview of today’s discovery challenges, a detailed statute-by-statute analysis of data retention requirements in federal workplace-related laws, a summary of emerging workplace social media and other technology-related issues and a guide to data protection privacy laws in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

For over a decade, the Technology in the Practice and Workplace Committee has been at the forefront of three primary areas: (1) examining the impact of technology on substantive labor and employment issues; (2) exploring the impact and use of technology on the practice of law; and, (3) serving as a resource to Section members.

Each year, the Technology Committee organizes the National Symposium on Technology in Labor and Employment Law. At these conferences, the Technology Committee brings together practitioners, academics, judges and technology experts to examine cutting edge technology issues in labor and employment law.

Our Committee was the first in the Section to have panel discussions on employment issues relating to cloud computing, Second Life, GPS, RFID, biometrics and the use of robotics in the workplace. In addition, we provide updates on electronic workplace privacy issues, new technology developments under the NLRA and public sector collective bargaining laws, and legal ethics.

Equally as important, the Technology Committee fosters real and meaningful connections with like-minded people. It provides a real opportunity to become deeply involved in Committee activities. Besides, we enjoy having fun at the same time of being at the forefront of technological issues.

If you are looking to be ahead of the curve with respect to technology issues facing your clients and your practice, you should consider joining the Technology Committee. To get additional information about the Committee or getting involved please contact one of our Co-Chairs listed below.
