Podcast: Monitoring emails in the workplace

Does the right to privacy under art.8 of the European Convention on Human Rights extend to emails sent at work? When can an employer monitor email messages? What is the balance between employee and employer rights? In this week's podcast, we discuss all these issues by looking at two recent cases before we move on to discuss some key practical pointers for employers when monitoring employee communications.

Presenter Laura Merrylees is joined by Fiona Cuming. Edited and produced by Laura Kimpton.
