Employee Privacy: Balancing a Manager’s Right to Know
This course provides an overview of employee privacy in the workplace. Managers should know their state’s regulations on privacy to achieve a balance between their need to know with employees’ right to freedom from undue intrusion into their personal lives. This course is for managers who wish to avoid litigation for invasion of-privacy or defamation claims, yet who must sometimes consider drug testing, searches, discussion of an employee’s behavior, or examination of an employee’s after-hour activities. This course may also interest company executives who initiate company policy regarding privacy.
