Episode 9: Insights on When a Student’s Employment Records Are Protected by FERPA

In this episode of the LEGALnotes podcast, HSE attorney Lindsey N. Bober delves into the intricacies of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. As a member of the Labor and Employment practice group, Lindsey explores the nuanced relationship between FERPA and records of student employees, emphasizing that, in certain instances, a student employee may have greater rights to access and amend their employment records than those afforded to other employees of the same institution. This insightful podcast provides valuable guidance for institutions of higher education navigating the intersection of privacy laws and employment practices.
