In today’s Warner Employment News From the Law Shanty, Steve Palazzolo speaks with Allyson Terpsma on the topic of employee surveillance. Although workplace productivity monitoring software programs have been around for the last decade or so, we’ve seen an increase in usage by employers wanting to monitor employees who work from home. Steve and Allyson discuss the types of surveillance software programs that are available, how they are used, and the legal concerns that may arise with respect to privacy and wage-hour laws. They also cover how employers could properly apply this tool to help manage performance and protect against data theft, cyberbullying and harassment.
