People Management;4/17/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 8, p48
The article examines variations in the provisions and implementation of European laws governing the use of Internet resources in the workplace. Some states only require employees to be informed, while others require collective agreement. Laws on data protection are similar across Europe but sanctions vary greatly, as does the likelihood of enforcement action being taken. Employers should take advice locally on the most appropriate protection for their organization in each jurisdiction.
