Webinar: 'Surveillance in the Workplace - perspectives from across Europe'

New technologies pose numerous questions for employers. In this webinar, our pan-European expert panel of lawyers considers the employment law and privacy issues which can arise as a result

With the use of technology in the workplace expanding apace, we are pleased to invite you to a webinar on 29 October 2019, which we are co-hosting with a number of European law firms with whom we regularly work to consider the employment law and privacy issues which can arise as a result. With our speakers discussing the challenges facing employers across the different jurisdictions, this promises to be a lively and engaging session.

New technologies pose numerous questions for employers. To what extent can they be implemented in the workplace? At what point does technology cross the line from useful innovation to an unacceptable interference with the employee’s right to privacy.

During this webinar, our pan-European expert panel – including employment law and data privacy specialists from the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Luxembourg – will explore these questions and more providing cross-jurisdictional guidance on issues including:

  • Using technology to monitor employee performance, conduct and working time;
  • Using biometric security measures, such as facial recognition and fingerprint scanning; and
  • Accessing employees’ social media during the lifecycle of the employment relationship.

The webinar will be broadcast at 12.30pm UK time on Tuesday, 29 October. We hope you will be able to join us. To find out more about this webinar (which is free of charge) and to register, please use the button below.
