Workplace Surveillance Meets Remote Work

As the pandemic forced a dramatic shift to working from home, employers have increasingly used surveillance technologies to track, monitor, and collect data on the behaviours and movements of remote workers. The latest digital developments in workplace surveillance have countless privacy and security concerns—raising questions about data protection, rights, power, and inequities.

On Friday, November 5th, we held a panel discussion on workplace surveillance and remote work in Canada. What are the implications? How do we ensure a safe and productive workforce while we prioritize the well-being and security of employees?

Panelists include:
- Kirstie Ball (University of St. Andrews)
- Jessica Kearsey (Deloitte Legal Canada)
- Peggy Nash, Chair (Centre for Labour Management Relations)
- Vass Bednar, Moderator (McMaster University)
- M.J. Masoodi, Report Presentation (Ryerson Leadership Lab)

The event briefed attendees on recommendations and research included in our corresponding report, Workplace Surveillance and Remote Work.
