Workplace Privacy: What Supervisors Need to Know

Course Description:

Workplace privacy is an important issue for employers, supervisors, and employees alike. The organization needs to keep a lot of information about employees and has to take steps to prevent theft, violence, and other criminal activities. On the other hand, the laws and courts give employees certain expectations of privacy when they are at work. Achieving a balance between the rights of the organization and the rights of employees is critical to maintaining a safe, secure, and productive workplace.
