Pernicious PDAs


In this article discussing the increasing use of blackberries in and outside of the workplace, Littler's Jeremy Roth is quoted extensively. The article notes that when employees take PDAs home with them, however, it's difficult for the company to control or keep track of how much time they are spending on work, which increases the likelihood of employers making mistakes in overtime pay. "Even if you tell employees to shut them off when they go out the door, if they don't and they're still working, they have a good argument that the employer should be on the hook to pay for that work," says Roth.
