At our place of work we do have a circuit television. Students and staff are monitored at the head's office. Do you consider it as a breach of your privacy if you have a circuit TV at work? © ronaldinu 2008

I've never had the experience and I don't know. I suppose if I signed a contract with my compamy stating this as one of their policies I wouldn't mind (after all, I did sign the contract), but, if they all of a sudden brought the cameras in at a much later date then I would have to think twice about what was going on in their minds.

Hi ronaldinu, Yes, I think it is a good idea to have it in schools, then you can monitor the pupils and when yoou have a bully in school then you will know who is the bully, yes i am all for it in schools. Tamara

Nowadays the way students can be towards teachers I think it is the best thing to do for the head teachers safety, more than anyone else..or for both...littleowl

Hi there ronaldinu I think they have to justify having one there. I think there can be problems at the heads office at the camera could settle a situation should one arise. I think maybe in some lines of business they need them due the staff helping themselves to products. I think that in some places it really isn't necessary if it is just watching how fast the employees work or something like that.

No, I do not, unless they kept it secret and did not tell you it was there. It is not just to monitor you, it would protect you against any false accusations. It would provide help for you if some students had criminal behavior or were just overly mischievous. Now, you do have the right, if you believe they are wrong to do this, to go work somewhere else.

I think it depends on the kind of work and kind of workplace you are in, sometimes CTV is essential and you feel a lot safer with it, it is there for your protection, yet we do see it as an invasion of privacy, naturally it shouldn't be in the changing rooms or toilets but if there is an incident and it's recorded it can back you up, especially if there is a case against you and it's your word against someone elses.
