I don't know for sure if this is going to happen I just over heard a dept team leader mention while some one joked and asked why there is a 47" flatscreen tv in the office where we work. His answer is that it's going to be used to monitor workers. Again he could of been joking but what are my rightsaccording to this? I know cameras can be used to monitor people by the management(even the toilets) but surely granting access to this information to every one who walk pass the office to get the next bit of work or just going through? Anyone know if this is legal?

Yes it's legal, as long as its not hidden surveillance. The footage must be processed lawfully, however, in line with data protection principles.

....although even hidden surveillance is lawful providing that all staff are made aware that they might be subject to covert CCTV and the purpose of that is stated. Surveillance in toilets or rest areas will almost always be unlawful given an individual's right to privacy.


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

Very true - perhaps I should have been more clear in that the CCTV policy needs to be transparent :)

Excellent PDFs thanks for that. It clears up a lot of things and I was looking for something like this for ages. This brings me to another question. The management’s argument with installing them in the toilets is because of criminal damage they have found and it left in a state. That if they wish I don't have problem with as you can go to the toilets hidden away from the darn things but there is a lack of signage around stating they are cameras there. There is only ONE notice at the front gate where as theware house workers see. Could be another where the admin staff enter I don't know but there does seem to be a lack of notifications in this building. Is this an issue I can possible raise?
