The Electronics Communications Privacy Act and common law protections against invasion of privacy limits, somewhat, workplace monitoring. Should employers have employees sign emails and telephone monitoring acknowledgement statements? Why? Why not? Please explain. In my opinion, employers have the right to monitor employee activities during work hours, to a certain extent. The main reason employer’s have the right is because they are paying the employees for their time during working hours. Every hour that an employee is paid for should be an hour of full productivity. Excessive personal use of email communications and telephone calls during business hours seems to be unethical on the part of the employee. Monitoring employee communications is important in order for employees to protect the company’s professional reputation and image, and to maintain employee productivity. Monitoring can prevent the leaking of confidential company information, harassment in the workplace through email messaging, and defamation. Because of the reasons listed above, employees should prepare communications monitoring statements for employees in order to inform employees of the monitoring and to protect the company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
