Read Ethical and Societal Issues (pg. 441): Computer Use Policies for Employees
Some companies resort to questionable means to enforce computer use policies. They use surveillance software to monitor employeesâ€™ IT use. Every activity on the employeeâ€™s computer is simultaneously tracked and recorded. Everything that the employee sees on their monitor can also be seen on the monitor of the person tracking them. The same software is used to monitor childrenâ€™s online activities and monitor spouses suspected of infidelity. Should employees be treated as undisciplined children or cheating spouses? Should employers not have the right to monitor whatâ€™s done with their equipment especially on paid time?
