Summary "The New Battle Over Workplace Privacy considers the basic conflict between an employer's right to manage and an employee's right to privacy, discussing such subjects as: random drug testing, searches and surveillance, the release of workplace information to creditors and future employers, monitoring employee use of E-mail and the Internet, using medical records in making employment-related decisions, checking criminal or driving records, and much more." "Employers walk a fine line when it comes to trying to protect their business concerns and not violate their employees' rights to privacy. The New Battle Over Workplace Privacy arms them with the ammunition they need to protect themselves and walk that line - without stumbling into a potential minefield of lawsuits."--Jacket.
