Employee monitoring refers to techniques used by an organization to gather information regarding the activities and locations of workers (Workman, 2009). Businesses adopt these strategies in order to enhance productivity and also to protect corporate assets. By monitoring employees, the businesses can prevent unacceptable behavior from the workers. There are various methods through which employers can accomplish the monitoring. However, these monitoring also raised ethical and legal issues. As such, this paper reviews the concept of employee monitoring, the legal issues involved, and how it impacts both the employees and their employers. It will also examine how personal information is protected so as to ensure it is not disclosed to unauthorized parties.
Studies carried out on employee behavior showed that between 30 and 40 of workers access the internet for activities not related to their job during working hours. Other statistics also showed that about 60% of all online purchases are made during working hours. There are also between 21 and 31% of workers that have sent emails or other communication with privileged corporate information to parties outside of the company communication network. As such, there is a need for employee monitoring to both prevent and stop such behavior.
Employers can adopt various strategies for this including keystroke logging, tapping the phones, GPS tracking of company assets, and internet monitoring (Chang, Liu & Lin, 2015). The latter helps the employee to view the surfing habits of the employee, their communications, and their use of social networking sites. Employers can also use employee monitoring software developed to help track how workers use their computers.
