This monitoring policy is a general guide to the way in which an organisation monitors the use by employees of electronic systems such as email and internet usage. In addition, information is provided as to the way in which electronic systems may be used by employees during working time.
The policy makes it clear that employees and other users of the organisation's electronic systems should not have an expectation of privacy, and that ongoing monitoring is undertaken.
The way in which an organisation monitors an employee's use of electronic systems is a heavily regulated and sensitive area. This policy provides that certain monitoring will take place, and is clear that when employees send personal e-mails, they should be marked as such.
