This month’s Business Bytes highlights business privacy, no hire agreement collusion and power of attorney.

Privacy is a Primary Business Concern. Illinois’ national leading Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) is a major concern and risk to any business that collects, stores and uses biometric information (i.e., voice or fingerprints and eye or face scans). Violations of BIPA can result in catastrophic losses by class actions, and insurance coverage is problematic. Be aware. READ MORE.

No Hire Agreement Collusion. Along with laws and courts striking down post-employment restrictions on former employees, courts have also found that franchise agreements that bar one franchise from hiring another’s employees are unenforceable and could subject the business to damages. Be sure your agreements do not illegally restrict your employees’ post-employment rights.  READ MORE.

Power of Attorney.  Accepting the title as another’s power of attorney imposes on you numerous fiduciary duties, including to always act in that person’s best interest, to avoid self-dealing and to properly document and account for your actions on that person’s behalf. Before undertaking that responsibility be sure you are aware of your obligations and confident of your ability to perform them. READ MORE.
