Employer Must Defend Against A Wrongful Death Lawsuit For Not Monitoring Employee Computer Use: Labor and Employment Law, School Law, Lawyers, Attorneys, Franczek Radelet

This below ruling is limited to Illinois. However, if other states’ laws allow for this expansion of employer liability, employees need to make sure they use their own personal devices to transmit e-mails and texts. Indeed, workers shouldn’t be using employer e-mails, computers, or phones for personal matters anyway. It’s not worth the risk of having an employer know your personal business.

For employers who are worried about this expansion of liability, you may be left with no other choice but to read personal e-mails and texts of your employees if they are foolish enough to transmit this information on company owned devices or through company e-mails.

Therefore, there aren’t laws that prevent a married father from seeing his child should the parents become separated without a court order.

Judge reprimanded for comment about proliferation of women lawyers; was he misunderstood?

As the article shows, there are still those whose mindsets that are best left in the ’30s and ’40s. The fact he worked at the EEOC on behalf of women is as scary as Justice Clarence Thomas tenure at that same agency.

A now-retired New Hampshire judge has been reprimanded for linking the proliferation of women lawyers to a worsening public regard for the legal profession. Judge John Lewis of Strafford County says he was making a point about sexism in society in his off-the-cuff remarks during a July 2013 meeting with public defenders. Lewis, 67, retired from his position as a supervisory judge in Dover in September after complaints by some who attended the meeting. The Associated Press, WMUR, the Eagle-Tribune and the New Hampshire Union Leader have stories. The New Hampshire Judicial Conduct Committee released the reprimand (PDF) last week.

When an employee is weighing the pros and cons of suing an employer, he should keep in mind that most court records are easily accessed through the internet. Therefore, the next job search may be difficult. It is just common sense that employers are turned off by employees who sue for harassment, discrimination, unpaid wages, etc.

If possible, hire an attorney to resolve the matter pre-litigation. In the settlement agreement, it is essential to include nondisclosure provisions and a neutral reference letter and neutral reference requirement.
