Uniform Employee and Student Online Privacy Protection Act
Dec. 1, 2016
The Uniform Employee and Student Online Privacy Protection Act (UESOPPA) provides a model for states to adopt to enable employees and students to make choices about whether, and when, to provide employers and educational institutions access to their personal online accounts. The act prohibits employers and educational institutions from requiring employees or students to provide them with access to their accounts or to “friend” the institution. Samuel Thumma, vice chief judge of the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division 1, will tell us more about the act.
