The Employer's Guide to Workplace Privacy helps employers manage confidential information about their business and their employees. It is a must-read for business owners, managers, and human resource professionals who need to know how privacy laws apply within the context of the employer/employee relationship.

The Guide examines workplace issues that are most likely to raise privacy concerns, including:

  • Employee and applicant tests
  • Confidentiality and access issues involving employee records
  • Employee and applicant investigations
  • Employees' off-duty activities
  • Employee monitoring and surveillance
  • Employer's confidential and proprietary information

The Guide discusses privacy law throughout the United States and offers strategies for managing privacy issues. There are numerous updated state law summaries, including gun laws, drug and alcohol testing, breastfeeding at work, cell phone usage, same-sex marriage, and other topics. The Guide includes easily reproducible employer checklists for medical and psychological testing, skills testing, criminal history checks, credit investigations, medical records privacy, and many other topics. There are more than a dozen sample policies, including smoking, personal appearance, interpersonal relationships, workplace searches, and more.

The Employer's Guide to Workplace Privacy includes information on current, topical issues, including these and more:
