The fragmented protection of privacy and data in labour law
The premise of this article is: act now regarding privacy law in general, and in particular its application to labour, or be complicit in its slow degradation. The indications of activity, such as legislation and case law, do not support the argument that privacy is being addressed. Satisfaction has grown with a simple easily surpassed threshold of notice. There must be a good, supported reason for intruding upon an individual's privacy. The ambition of this contribution is to identify the fragmented treatment of privacy, and then to offer points for recalibrating privacy at work.
