The hybrid and remote work revolution has led to increased use of home computers, as well as an uptick in the use of collaborative communication platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Slack. Remote work and new technology aren’t going away. Neither are litigation holds, which are designed to preserve information in the face of potential litigation or investigations. But preserving data on home devices and multiple electronic platforms is a newer challenge.
If, during a litigation hold, an employee deletes, misplaces, or alters the wrong file or saves it to a place their employer doesn’t have access to, the employer could face sanctions for spoliation.
