Developments in Privacy Labour Law: A Panel Discussion

Anne Wallace, Arbitrator
Heather Jensen, Plaxton Jensen, Union Counsel
Amy Gibson, MLT Aikins, Employer Counsel

Privacy in the workplace is a quickly changing area of labour law, constantly evolving to balance the employer’s right to manage the workplace with the employee’s right to privacy. Social media, new work arrangements, and new privacy legislation affect the workplace, and create uncertainty for employees, managers, and labour relations/human resource professionals. For instance, can an employee be disciplined for Facebook posts, tweets, or Snapchat pics? Is an employee required to comply with an order to submit a personal laptop or smart phone to an employer for inspection? When is off-duty conduct the concern of an employer? Is an employer entitled to examine personal emails on the company server? These, and many other questions will be addressed as the panel reviews the key developments in this interesting area of labour law.
