How do you monitor employee internet usage while respecting privacy?

  • Be transparent about employee monitoring. Employers should notify their employees of internet monitoring through acceptable use policies, team meetings, and periodic reminders.
  • Not monitor more than necessary. Employers should use the least invasive method of monitoring that fulfills the goals of the business. 
  • Protect employee monitoring data. The internet usage data of employees may be sensitive. Employers should protect this data the same way they would treat other sensitive data.
