Dittman v. UPMC – PA Supreme Court Requires Employers to Safeguard Personal Information – Webinar
May 8, 2019
Presented by McNees Attorneys Devin Chwastyk, Carol Steinour Young, and
In the landmark Dittman v. UPMC case, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court held that employers owe their employees a duty to exercise reasonable care when collecting and storing employees’ personal and financial information. The Court also called into question the viability of the economic loss doctrine, which had barred tort claims involving only monetary loss. Although Dittman involved employee data, future court decisions may impose a duty to exercise reasonable care when collecting and storing the personal information of customers, clients, students, and others. We will engage in a thorough discussion of this important case and give practical guidance on how to protect information, respond to data breaches, and avoid liability.
