The individual right to privacy has changed dramatically over the past decade. Many novel issues have arisen in the workplace as a result of increased social media usage and the provision of company smart phones and laptops.
Generally speaking, employees are entitled to a certain expectation of privacy at work. How far this extends, however, will vary. Among other things, your expectation of privacy may be affected by where you work, the type of work you perform and workplace policies your employer may institute. Employers are also required to take all reasonable efforts to protect any private information you provide to them.
In Ontario, all employees are legally protected from unauthorized intrusion upon their private information. Our privacy lawyers can help you understand your entitlements and exercise your privacy rights.
Employment and Labour Laws are not always straightforward, but whether you are an employee or an employer, understanding your rights and duties will only stand to benefit you.
