About This Course:
Many managers are required now to observe and consider realistic and proper practices and procedures for monitoring employee activities and communications. Such assignments are typically for the purposes of improving workplace productivity, maintaining asset control, and enhancing workforce harmony. Even if not asked to undertake such efforts, managers today are often confronted with digital communications or activities disclosed to them by peers, co-workers, or employees whom they supervise.

As a result, all managers, and their supervisors or advisers, need to gain some familiarity with the issues that arise from actively observing employee activities or communications, whether performed in-person or digitally. Obtaining a foundational knowledge in this area proves critical for formulating and applying proper workplace policies and procedures.
