Company policies give clear advice to a company’s employees on the company’s policies, procedures and expectations of its employees.

Workplace surveillance is permitted by law, provided that the company carrying out the surveillance has policies in place that comply with any applicable legislation.

“Overt” surveillance (being surveillance that is open and not hidden), can only occur if an employee has been given notice of the surveillance. “Covert” (or hidden) surveillance can only occur in limited circumstances where a covert surveillance authority has been issued in accordance with applicable law. At least 14 days prior notice is required for existing employees, unless a company’s employees agree to a shorter period of notice. For new employees, notification must be given before they start work.
