Employment Law, Employee Resource Links
Employees have a right to privacy in certain aspects of the workplace. An employer generally may not search an employee’s handbag, briefcase, locked desk drawer, locked storage locker or person without permission from the employee. Likewise, an employee has some privacy in personal telephone conversations but does not have a strong right to privacy in company e-mail messages and Internet use. If you feel your right to privacy has been violated by your employer, contact an experienced employment law attorney today.
