Minister suggests plan to help crack down on employers spying on employees

The Minister for Human Rights and Minorities Michael Kocáb has suggested updating the Czech labor law to crack down on employers who don’t respect the privacy of their employees. The new law would make it possible for inspectors of the Ministry of Labor to search companies for hidden cameras and spying software installed on employee’s computers. In addition, the ministry could fine employers if they breach their employees’ privacy. While unwarranted spying on employees is already banned by current laws, some employers take advantage of their authority to spy on their staff.
