References, surveillance and privacy are all topics that affect every work place. It is not uncommon for organisations to keep an eye on their employees via video cameras or internet monitoring, but it needs to be done with the permission of staff. Privacy needs to be maintained for all employees and staff. We have provided some information on these topics below to help you to safeguard against these issues occurring in your workplace, and policies to protect you if the worst should happen.
We have policies available to protect you when things go wrong. If you need legal advice or a policy tailored to your specific needs, please contact our Employment Law & Investigations Team for more information.
