Employers must be clear with their staff about their monitoring policies, experts have said, after a new report from the TUC revealed more than half of UK workers believe their boss monitors them at work.
The national survey of more than 1,200 UK workers, conducted by the TUC in May this year, found 56 per cent of people felt monitoring was going on in the workplace, through methods including CCTV, browsing history and phone logs. In addition, 6 in 10 believed the development of new technologies could increase these practices.
Anthony Sakrouge appears in People Management saying "workplace monitoring was likely to be more widespread than the majority of workers may have anticipated".
Employers 'must be overt’' when monitoring staff in the workplace is available to read on the People Management website.
Anthony is head of the employment team, which has been described by The Legal 500 as delivering "an outstanding level of service". He acts for both employers and employees, specialising in contentious work and negotiations relating to the complex starting and leaving packages of directors and other senior employees.
