Sample Policy on Privacy and Employee Monitoring

If you intend to monitor employees' business calls or their e-mail, you should absolutely have a policy that tells employees up front what will be monitored and what won't. Our sample policy can help you set up a legally compliant program to monitor these employee communications.
