Electronic Monitoring

Technology now makes it possible for employers to read employee email, track employee keystrokes on their computers, and even trace employee movements through GPS. Although many might believe that what we type, transmit, and post is private, courts have largely found otherwise. 

Although there are some legal protections for employees who are fired based on their online statements, this isn't always the case. And, if employees are using an employer's equipment, courts have routinely held that employees have no privacy in their messages and posts.
