photoThe use of dual-purpose electronic devices in the workplace, from smartphones to tablets to laptops, has exploded. This use creates legal risks for employers. When the devices are employee-owned, use for both personal and work purposes has become the norm.

Employers must develop and implement policies and procedures to address employee use of devices to managing the risks that arise in and out of the workplace.
