Barclays being probed in UK on accusations of spying on staff
The ICO said on Sunday a formal probe was ongoing but it could not say when the investigation would conclude.
“People expect that they can keep their personal lives private and that they are also entitled to a degree of privacy in the workplace,” an ICO spokesman said.
“If organisations wish to monitor their employees, they should be clear about its purpose and that it brings real benefits. Organisations also need to make employees aware of the nature, extent and reasons for any monitoring”, he added.
The probe was reported earlier by The Sunday Telegraph newspaper. ■
