NEW YORK, March 11, 2019 — Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the release of a new white paper on the legal concerns and the compliance issues that arise as the business use of technology has increased. Authored by Wolters Kluwer’s senior employment law analyst Lorene D. Park, the white paper is the company’s latest analysis on labor and employment law’s intersection with technology pertaining to accessibility, discrimination, social media use, privacy, trade secrets, and more.

It also provides extensive legal analysis on onboarding in a digital age, data breaches, computer-use policies, social media, technology and employee privacy, mobile devices and email accounts, and surveillance of employees.

“With the widespread use of technology, compliance issues now pervade all facets of business, including the employment relationship,” said Park, who has served ten years as a senior analyst for Wolters Kluwer’s digital content on labor and employment law. “This white paper will guide business and legal professionals when they face questions about the labor and employment regulatory landscape in today’s digital age.”
