The legal obligations of service providers to protect survivor information can be complex and variable. This webinar will provide an overview of the differences between privacy, confidentiality, and privilege, and discuss what obligations service providers have to protect client information in different scenarios. Also discussed will be best practices for releases of information, what to do if you get a subpoena, how to ensure survivor privacy is protected even as staff and volunteers leave an organization, and what to do if information has been shared. Attendees will learn about privacy considerations in criminal, civil, and other cases, and will have an opportunity to submit specific questions ahead of time.
