Haeco Says Employees Can’t Sue Over Phished W-2 Data

I was wondering how many lawsuits we might see by employees whose firms fell for phishing schemes involving W-2 data.

From what Law360 reports, HAECO employees did sue their employer, who’s arguing that the employees can’t sue for invasion of privacy because the employees had given their information to their employer willingly.

Okay, that defense makes sense, but then what could the employees sue their employer for? And the fact that your own employees are suing you, well…. maybe your incident response wasn’t as good as it could have been? Just wondering….
