Recent Developments in Workplace Technologies and Privacy

Authors: Frances C. Doyle, with the assistance of Magdalena Wojda, both of Harris & Company LLP, Vancouver, BC

In this paper written for the recent CLEBC course: Privacy Update 2013, the authors discuss two issues that have garnered a great deal of attention and debate: an employee’s expectation of privacy in personal information stored on employer issued laptops, and an employer’s right to monitor the use of work vehicles through GPS and engine monitoring. This paper discusses the recent cases generating this debate and their significance to workplaces in which these technologies are being used.
