IT use and abuse in the workplace

Listen to the Webinar

Hogan Lovells in partnership with the Association of Corporate Counsel Europe (ACC Europe) brings you the sixth in our complimentary webinar series focusing on the latest legal issues for in-house counsel in Europe.


Information Technology in the workplace is fundamentally important in helping businesses remain competitive, efficient and profitable. The use of IT for internal and external communications has many advantages but companies need to ensure that specific policies and procedures are in place to manage IT security in the workplace.  This is particularly important when it comes to social media, the use of which continues to create headlines in the press and headaches for employers. Where should we draw the line between the workplace and an employee's private life and how does an employer balance this with the needs of the business?

Using a social networking case study, our panel of European lawyers will consider the difficult issues facing employers in this context, including matters such as:

  • Use of social media in the workplace
  • Investigations and disciplinary action
  • Employee monitoring
  • Online bullying and harassment
  • Internet and email policies
  • Data protection and privacy
