Workplace Safety and Wearable Technology in Workers' Compensation

OnDemand Webinar (70 minutes)

Gain an understanding of the legal and ethical implications with wearable technology in the workplace. Wearable technology, which is one of the fastest growing segments of the tech industry, offers many benefits to consumers and employers alike. However, because wearables can record audio, video, and generate health data, the devices also present a multitude of legal and ethical concerns when used in the workplace, and the concerns raised by wearable technology are often not addressed by an employer's existing cell phone use policy. This topic will explain the types of wearables offered in the market today, and will discuss their benefits in the workplace. The information will then explain the legal and ethical implications with wearables in the workplace, and offer solutions to address them.
