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

New technologies pose numerous questions for employers. In this pre-recorded 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 consider the employment law and privacy issues which can arise as a result. In this session, which we co-hosted with a number of European law firms, we discuss the challenges facing employers across the different jurisdictions. 

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 –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.
