British Airways spying scandal: How the world's most famous airline spied on its own staff
It will be fun to watch how this story unfurls.
Everyone should assume that anything they do on a computer or phone owned or managed by their employer is monitored and known by management...
Exactly ... there is no privacy expectation there!
That's not necessarily true in all countries. The CEO of the German railways was forced to resign back in 2009 as a result of the company snooping on employees.
(for the US, I do agree with your warning...)
I guess that the expectations of privacy on a work computer are different in Germany as compared to the US!
Maybe they have a good excuse like they only did it on BA flight 007
Sorry poor humor.
I could see that in the US union leaders/members might have some level of privacy rights also. But a general corporate employee doesn't.
Where it gets tricky is with my cellphone. My company doesn't pay for the device (BYOD), but as a benefit I am on a corporate plan. I never see the bill. Does the entitle my employer to make a special deal with AT&T to snoop on my calls or data usage? (I fully assume that they receive an itemized call list since they get and pay for the bill)
Union leaders/members don't have that privilege when using company devices. But they do have a right to privacy using their own devices while conducting union business on company property during the so-called union time.
