Q. We post employees’ vacation schedules in the employee lunchroom. Occasionally, outside visitors or customers visit the lunchroom, too. Some employees have complained about this posting policy, saying it borders on invasion of privacy. Are they right, from a legal standpoint, and should we stop doing this?
A. It is probably not illegal (assuming you are only posting vacation dates), but it seems unnecessary and is obviously causing some morale issues. That being the case, you might consider a less public way of maintaining the information.
