Tonkon Torp attorneys Blerina Kotori and Olivia Hariharan Godt presented a November 9 session at BOLI’s Annual Employment Law Conference. The two provided a timely look at applicable laws and legal considerations when tracking employee productivity and availability, as well as moonlighting, in the current remote work environment.
Blerina and Olivia led the nearly 200 attendees through the types of electronic employee monitoring available to employers and reviewed how employee monitoring intersects with wiretapping and privacy laws in Oregon, Washington, and California. They also discussed the rise in moonlighting and the laws and policies that relate to the practice. They analyzed several hypothetical scenarios to illustrate best practices in these situations.
