Unrestricted use of email, social media and file hosting services can have damaging effects on employers’ reputation and business. Bullying, discrimination, defamation, virus exposure, lost productivity and transferring confidential information and trade secrets are just some of the issues that can arise from misuse of telephone, email and Internet at work.

Monitoring workers’ use of communication systems or their surveillance by CCTV may seem like a good way to protect business interests. However, this must be balanced with, and not infringe, workers’ privacy and data protection rights.

Workers do not leave their privacy and data protection rights at the door when they come into work each day. Article 8 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (“ECHR”) provides that “everyone has a right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence”. The European Court of Human Rights (“ECtHR”) has found that this privacy right applies in the workplace, as workers are not limited to life within the home. In Copland v United Kingdom the ECtHR concluded that Article 8 was infringed where there was no IT policy in the workplace and the employees were not told they may be monitored.
