From onboarding paperwork to payroll documents and medical records, employers collect and store large quantities of sensitive employee information every day. With data breaches and regulatory oversight becoming more the rule than the exception, is your company doing what it should be doing to minimize risk? This complimentary HR Circle program will:

  • Help you identify the types of sensitive information your company maintains, and where you maintain it;
  • Address the policies and procedures you must have in place to comply with state and federal law;
  • Analyze when HIPAA does and does not apply to medical information collected in the employment context (e.g., information collected for FMLA leave, ADA accommodation requests, workers' compensation claims, and health benefits administration); and
  • Provide critical guidance on training and educating your workforce so you can avoid unnecessary exposure.

Labor and Employment attorney Joshua Walls and Cybersecurity and Privacy attorneys Michelle DeBarge and Michael McGinley will address these timely topics in our New Haven and Stamford offices. This program will be beneficial to human resource professionals, health benefit administrators, in-house counsel, information security officers, and anyone who manages or supervises employees.
