Employees’ rights to privacy are being brought to question on many fronts—just what is your right to privacy at your place of employment? Does your employer have a right to read your personal e-mail? To place surveillance cameras in the restroom? To track the sites that you visit? Monitor your phone calls?
Evaluate the employer’s interest in monitoring employees, including the rights that employers have.
Assess the rights to privacy and protection from monitoring that employees should have.
Justify a brief communication plan for policies and procedures pertaining to monitoring.
The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.
Your posting should be the equivalent of 1 to 2 single-spaced pages (500 words) in length.
