Employee Privacy Rights - Worker personal privacy privileges encompass an worker’s personal activities and information at the job. Companies in the private sector, rather than focusing on an authorities agreement, do have some legal obligations to their employees, but often company policy will dictate many of an employee’s privacy rights.

Employers need to monitor employees due to employee theft, fraud and inappropriate behavior, but you can’t cross the line of violating employee privacy. This difficult balance requires having policies in place and communication that allows for protecting the company without breaking privacy laws.
