This month we are highlighting the right of privacy and data protection laws. Privacy in the workplace can be quite confusing. What does your employer have a right to and where does an employee’s privacy end?
A notable book on the topic is the latest edition of Privacy in Employment Law. The book provides clear descriptions about the limits of employer authority in several areas. Key topics include securing information about applicants and employees, disclosing employee or applicant information, and controlling employee activities in the U.S. workplace. Additionally, it covers state laws relevant to workplace privacy including drug testing, access to personnel files, lie detection, electronic monitoring, and more.
Also, Privacy in Employment Law has valuable resources about selected foreign statutes and the European Union directive on privacy law. These are key concerns for any business that has employees in other countries.
This book is available at our Downtown location.
