Naked Employee by Frederick S. Lane

Book Description

"Most people would be startled to know the many ways in which their employers are capable of intruding on privacy. Huge technological advances are steadily shrinking workers' personal space, and it's up to individuals to know which parts of their daily lives may fall under the corporate magnifying glass. Corporations have the means to monitor e-mails, phone conversations, and web-surfing, but that's not all...Among other things, video surveillance, GPS tracking of company cars, and even the use of infrared badges to determine employee location are methods that have come into play in the workplace. From increasingly intrusive hiring practices to continuous information gathering, "The Naked Employee" takes a probing look at the relationship between companies and their employees, and examines the social, legal, and moral implications of various types of employee monitoring. Measuring the rights of the individual against the needs of the organization, this timely book investigates the vital privacy questions facing every employee. "The Naked Employee" is packed with eye-opening, sometimes shocking information as well as clear, concise explanations of relevant legislation and technologies. This timely book arms readers with the facts they need to defend themselves against the omnipresent corporate gaze."
