David Thompson to Discuss Privacy on ABA Panel

David Thompson will discuss the changing legal implications of online privacy and the impact of online privacy on the workplace through an American Bar Association webcast on Oct. 27. 

Entitled, “Investigating and Forgetting on the Web,” the panel will discuss the impact of new media on the workplace, and the legal foundations of online privacy. Panelists will discuss the legal implications of  on-line research in the recruiting process, workplace social media policies, employee risk, online concerted activity and other NLRA issues, as well as the growing inconsistency between old laws and new technology. Technology discussed will include the growing use of online “cleaners” and other methods of purging web histories.   

Mr. Thompson will be joined by attorneys Steven C. Bennett and Mark Risk; Heather Morgan will serve as moderator. The panel will be webcast nationally by the American Bar Association. 

Mr. Thompson is a corporate associate in the Los Angeles office of Munger Tolles. He has a broad corporate representation practice, and is the former general counsel and chief privacy officer of the Silicon Valley privacy startup Reputation.com, Inc. (formerly ReputationDefender).
