Workplace E-Monitoring and Surveillance of Employees: Indirect Tool of Information Gathering

Ikonne Chinyere N [2] | Prof. Ikonne Chiemela N


Abstract: This paper discussed how employers indirectly gather information on their employees in the workplace. The means used in achieving this aim is through e-monitoring and surveillance. Some forms and methods of e-monitoring and surveillance applications were indentified. Rationales in favor of and against e-monitoring and surveillance of employees were also reviewed. Employers argue that e-monitoring and surveillance are indispensible for the employees effective performance and security of the organization. On the other hand, employees contend that workplace e-monitoring and surveillance is a system that infringe on their privacy. It was discovered that one of the ways by which this conflict could be resolved is by establishing a clear and balanced written policy regarding the implementation of e-monitoring and surveillance in the workplace. This should be a part of employees work contract and might lead to the balancing of the rights of both the employers and employees to the workplace.
