The IPA has prepared guidance and practical steps on how agency employers can remain compliant when monitoring workplace communications.

This follows a recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) stating that an employee’s right to respect for his private life and correspondence in the workplace had in fact been breached by the employer’s email monitoring activities.

Says Juliet Bawtree, Associate Director of Legal & Public Affairs (Employment), IPA; “Whilst at first glance this ruling appears unhelpful for employers, it does outline useful guidelines on how workplace monitoring can be compliant with the right to respect for private life and communications.”

Members can download the full details of and guidance on this ruling.
