~ federal legislation eyes employers ~

Congress may make it tortious for employers to maintain parking lot video monitoring if employees regularly change in and out of their work clothes in their vehicles. Bet Congress didn't think of that!

H.R. 582 - To protect employees from invasion of privacy by employers by prohibiting certain video monitoring and audio monitoring of employees by their employers, and for other purposes.
Summary: An employer may not engage in video monitoring or
audio monitoring of an employee of the employer when the
employee is in a restroom facility, dressing room, or any
other area in which it is reasonable to expect employees
of the employer to change clothing.
Status: Feb 2, 2005: Referred to House Government Reform
