Posting of Employee Information Via the Company Intranet
I run a consulting business and of late, I have run into employees or Former employees of companies who have mentioned how upset they were that HR decided to post their picture, name, department, supervisor, etc. on an Internal Intranet web system without their permission. Not knowing how to answer these folks, I'm wondering from you HR pros and legal scholars out there - what are the legal rules for this? Should there be disclousures signed before HR decides to do this to an employee? Does an employee have a right to say how much information they wish to disclose for anyone in the company to have access to? Or are these postings harmless and these employees Corporate trouble makers? Where can I be guided to more information about this? Thanks so much!
