Webinar Description

With the advancement of privacy laws globally, employers in Asia and the Pacific continue to wrestle with just how far the right of privacy extends to employees in the employment context. What actions and activities do employers have the right to monitor or at least know about, and what can they do once they uncover any wrongdoing? Featuring employment lawyers from across the Asia Pacific, this webinar will examine the differences among jurisdictional laws and offer practical insight, guidance, and best practices into how employers can address the following key issues:

  • Can employers dictate employee conduct outside working hours and the workplace? What types of outside conduct are actionable?
  • Is an employee’s freedom of expression subject to the interests of the employer?
  • To what extent does an employee have the right to express personal views on social media, even if they do not align with those of the employer?

Who Should Attend?

The webinar is an invitation-only event exclusively for clients of ELA member law firms. The information presented will be of particular interest to:

  • In-house Counsel
  • Human Resources Professionals
  • Corporate Executives and Business Owners
