And even then, regarding the use at work, it certainly doesn't equate to trust in employees, so even though I think the employers have the right to use this technology at work, I don't know if it is the smart thing to do for all businesses. If you are uncomfortable with it, I'm guessing others are too.

I like the word sue-able!

But I love the company I work for and I couldn't do that. I'm pretty sure the rest of the account mangers in other regions feel the same. We have a range of account managers from a 45 year old mother of 2 in Western Ontario to a 30 year old single guy who doubles as a bouncer in Greater Toronto whom I'd assume would like to keep their lives private. I'd have to consult with them on it.

I'm not saying you should sue. I'm saying that it is a big enough privacy violation, that if any harm comes from it, then a lawsuit should be fair game.

If it's a legit company they shouldn't be against putting in some safeguards against invading your privacy and spelling out that policy. Otherwise, the next time you call in seek, they may start looking to see why your phone was at a bar until 1:30 AM or at an apartment that belongs to the secretary in accounting or whatever.

If it doesn't affect their productivity then who needs to know what they do in their down time.
I think these measure should be in place if productivity is dramatically low, otherwise let them be.
