Privacy Rights and the Workplace

The Canadian workplace presents many potential privacy legal issues. Consider these questions:

  • Are your work 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 behavior that you have seen publicized on social media?
