Workplace Privacy and Monitoring: The Quest for Balanced Interests

Technological innovations that permit intensive monitoring continue to be developed for deployment in the American workplace. While workplace law previously offered some protections for employee privacy, the legal rights and duties of both employers and employees have become increasingly murky as the newer technologies have been adopted. Some employers are disciplining and terminating employees based on information uncovered by monitoring via GPS surveillance, email and Internet use, and cellular phone data. Professor Levinson, a preeminent scholar in the field of workplace privacy, will explore the interests at stake for both employers and employees and the reasoning in recent judicial opinions that have developed this branch of privacy law. She will also identify some nonjudicial remedial approaches, including legislation and labor arbitration, that offer opportunities to fashion an appropriate balance of interests.

42nd Annual Moot Court Night & Appellate Advocacy Seminar

CLE credit: 
1.5 free
Weight:

Speakers/Special Guests: 

The Honorable Deborah L. Cook
United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit

The Honorable Jeffrey S. Sutton
United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit

The Honorable Solomon Oliver, Jr.
Chief Judge of the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Ohio

During this annual event, students participating in the Cleveland-Marshall Moot Court Program will prepare for the national moot court competition by presenting their arguments before a panel of distinguished jurists. In addition, the participating jurists will provide a brief seminar on appellate advocacy. The Moot Court Board of Governors will also present its 7th Annual Alumni Recognition Award.

During this year’s Moot Court Night, students will argue a fictional case regarding the enactment of a city ordinance that requires employers to pay a minimum amount on healthcare expenditures for each hour an employee works. Under the ordinance, employers whose expenditures fall short of the required amount have to pay the difference to the city. A business association representing the city’s largest employers won a preliminary injunction to block the ordinance and the city is now seeking to reverse this ruling. The issues on appeal concern the appropriate standard to be applied by a court when deciding a motion for preliminary injunction and whether the ordinance is preempted by ERISA.
