- Online recruiting and screening
- Social media
- Electronic signatures
- Discipline for employee comments or conduct online
- Payroll cards
- Bring-your-own-device programs
- Data preservation, security and management
Constangy's e-Law team will also help employers navigate the complexities of modern litigation and e-discovery, from start to finish.
The new group is chaired by Nancy Leonard in the firm’s Kansas City office and Susan Bassford Wilson in the St. Louis office.
“We’ve created a team of experienced attorneys from within the firm who not only understand the complexities of employment law, but who are ahead of the curve in following constantly evolving technologies and how they are fundamentally changing the way companies engage with their employees,” said Neil Wasser, chairman of Constangy’s executive committee.
