Monitoring staff screens, legality etc...?
*sigh* *head explode* *face palm* *bang head against wall*
We have just re-installed Impero after our trial (Excellent bit of software, highly recommended) but a certain member of leadership has caught on that they can now watch every member of staff's computer etc...
Personally I am massively uncomfortable with this so I need a few spanners, what is the legality of monitoring staff and the general policies towards it?
I know that legally an employer can do it but do we need to tell staff before hand? If so what do we have to tell them? I know for a fact that if I send out a blanket email to staff telling them that management are monitoring them it will cause an uprising and things will get messy and hopefully leadership would shelve the idea. So I am sincerely hoping there is a legal precedent or requirement for us to notify staff, is there?
As for me I run a *nix box so I am in the clear *whistles contently*
I would love to hear what other schools do and what policies and notices are given to staff with regards to the monitoring and if any major unions have any policies regarding it.
Thanks chaps and chappettes.
