Workplace Surveillance and Privacy
Scott McNealy, CEO and co-founder of Sun Microsystems was famously reported to have said “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.” McNeally may well be right on the facts, but he is wrong on the attitude. Instead of ‘getting over it’, citizens need to demand clearer and stronger laws on privacy, security, and confidentiality.
Under the New South Wales Privacy and Workplace Surveillance Act as long as your employer gives you notice, in accordance with this law, that they might from time to time monitor your emails, phone calls and track your location, then at least at work you don’t have much privacy at all.
This is a paper on the New South Wales Privacy and Workplace Surveillance Act.
