Employers have the right to monitor employee data in the workplace.

Activities that can be monitored include checking phone usage, internet history or inbound and outbound emails.

Conducting workplace monitoring can trigger data protection obligations as it presents significant privacy risks.

As an employee, you could find yourself subject to disciplinary action if you are using workplace equipment for reasons other than those permitted under your employment contract.

Our employment lawyers can advise both employers and employees on their rights and duties under the Data Protection Act.
