In this age of e-mail and social networking, electronic communications have become a liability for businesses. Specifically, businesses are liable for communications made from and between employees and problems may arise from this liability.
For instance, a rogue employee could e-mail trade secrets to a competitor or post damaging information to social media or a website. In addition, questions often arise about the privacy of text messages, instant messages and even social network messages that are made by employees on a business device, but are personal in nature. Organizations are increasingly being held accountable for communications delivered within their purview, which often means less privacy for employees.

For more than 20 years, our firm has represented individuals and businesses in Detroit and Southeast Michigan.
