Video Surveillance Policy Template


Video surveillance in the workplace can be very useful. For example, it can help you ensure the safety of workers who work alone and thus are especially vulnerable. But videotaping workers can also infringe on their privacy rights. Whether you’re permitted to use video surveillance in the workplace will depend on a balancing of the employer’s interests, such as ensuring workplace safety, and workers’ right to privacy. But one thing I clear—if you are going to use video surveillance, you’re almost always required to notify workers that you intend to do so.
