The golden rule applies to employee monitoring
According to a 2003 study by the Center for Business Ethics at Bentley College, 92 percent of American employers conduct some form of workplace monitoring.
In most cases, employers are well within their rights to do so. But there are some areas where employers could find themselves being sued, publicly humiliated or both. The key is to treat your employees the way you would like to be treated.
Following guidelines for the most common monitoring issues can be found at the River Valley Business Report.
