Privacy has become an increasingly complex issue in the workplace. There are a number of laws that are designed to protect an employee’s privacy rights. However, there are also statutes and cases that have recognized that an employee does not have an exclusive right to privacy in the workplace. In recent years, there has been an increased number of lawsuits filed for workplace privacy violations as advances in technology have changed the way that workplace privacy is defined. This section examines current interpretations of workplace privacy in the private sector and will address some of the rights and limitations on an employer’s ability to monitor and control their workplace. This section does not constitute legal advice and employers should consult with an attorney regarding specific workplace privacy issues.
