In a decision entered on June 18, 2008, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit made important findings concerning the right of employers to obtain and read employees’ text messages sent over employer-provided services. This Legal Update discusses the decision in detail and recommends that employers review their workplace surveillance practices to ensure their continuing compliance with state and federal law.
