Privacy Rights and the Workplace

  • Does your employer have a legal right to monitor your activity with or without your knowledge?
  • How may personal content that you post on social media impact your employment?
  • As an employer, what legal rights do you have to terminate an employee based on off-duty behaviour that you have seen publicized on social media?
