Court’s Official Recognition of Tort of Intrusion Upon Seclusion Reaffirms Privacy Rights of Illinois Employees

Franczek Radelet P.C • November 08, 2012
In Lawlor v. North American Corporation of Illinois, the Illinois Supreme Court formally recognized “intrusion upon seclusion,” a form of invasion of privacy, as a valid claim under state common law. The court also ruled that an employer can be subject to liability under this theory for the actions of outside consultants acting as the employer’s agent. The decision raises questions and concerns about employer liability arising from independent investigations of current and former employee conduct and communications, including communications that occur in traditional channels as well as through social media.
