In this 90 minute session participants will learn about the newest features and their pros and cons; the latest updates on latest court rulings and regulations; integrating new information easily into workplace policies; preventing and responding to unlawful conduct; protecting company information and proprietary secrets; your responsibilities for employees' "off the clock" usage; monitoring and discouraging time wasters; and receive a checklist of state-by-state laws pertaining to cell phone and texting use while driving.
