“BYOD (“Bring Your Own Device”) Policies: Driving Employers to Drink?”
We are all familiar with the cocktail-hour expression “BYOB.” While the practice of allowing employees to bring their personal electronic devices to work (known as “BYOD”) presently sweeping California workplaces is apparently unrelated to booze, the resulting legal headaches are driving many employers to distraction.
This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 36 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.
Members are encouraged to bring their questions. Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
