HR Data: Monitoring your employees fairly and lawfully

You can have many valid reasons for wanting to monitor your employees, but finding a way to do so that’s ethical and legal, yet still effective, is challenging.

Join us for a virtual discussion on this sensitive and crucial topic. We’ll address key issues such as:

  • Why might you want to monitor employees and how is this a data issue?
  • What are employees’ rights on being monitored?
  • What steps should you take to ensure monitoring is lawful and fair?
  • Systematic; occasional; covert – how are the various types of monitoring different?
  • Are there special considerations when using CCTV?
  • What could go wrong?

We’ll discuss where the boundaries lie in areas such as checking on employees’ health, safety and welfare; scrutinising performance on and off-site; what constitutes legitimate interests and what are your legal obligations; and is covert recording ever justified?

This is an interactive discussion for all participants. Your input and opinions are important, so we welcome your questions and suggestions for topics you’d like to be covered in this event.
