Privacy Issues and the Workplace
The Canadian workplace presents many potential privacy legal issues. Consider these questions:
- Is your workplace computer and the contents contained within your personal files or do they belong to your employer?
- 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?
