Privacy in the Workplace

Navigation:  Home > Civil Rights Law> Privacy in the Workplace

 

Unlike in earlier decades, technology makes it much easier now for employers to invade the privacy of an employee, whether by checking their emails, listening in on phone conversations, and ransacking the employee’s cubicle while he or she is away. Believe it or not, employers can also find out what you’ve been looking at on the web. And you know what? It’s all perfectly legal. Why? Because once you enter the workplace, your expectation of privacy is reduced considerably, in a legal context. That means your employer can monitor your behaviors. That is, you know people are going to be watching over you, and you understood that as a condition of the job.
