However, some employers may be concerned that monitoring employee’s computer is legitimate? This will not infringe on the privacy of employees? Employees also feel not good and think his or her company is watching their personal privacy.In fact, the privacy laws of the United States is allowing an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into his or her private affairs, discloses his or her private information, publicizes him or her in a false light, or appropriates his or her name for personal gain.The companies install computer monitoring software not for peeping or disclosing employees’ personal information just for monitoring their job during working time, and companies do have the right.Companies pay for employees’ work,so employees shouldn’t do private things during working time.In addition, the company itself is a public place, do not fall within the scope of the individual’s private life, so companies install monitoring software does not infringe on the privacy of employees.
