Corporate Spied: Get Out

posted Sep 06, 2002

At every job I've started since the computer age began, I have been required to sign a document that basically threatens the new employee with expulsion if the phone, computer or office is used for any type of personal business. I have always signed. But now surveillance software has arrived, and I think back on that document with dread and anger. [osOpinion]

I think this is close to the right approach to take if this becomes an issue in your workplace. As I've said before, I think employee surveillance is largely between employee and employer. Point out the decrease in productivity they should expect from their best workers. Especially because of the naive trust placed in computers, it's better that nobody have the information at all.

Of course this works best with a union....
