Q. I’m looking to create a policy regarding cell phones with photographic capabilities. Any suggestions?
A. You should consider prohibiting the use of cameras, including those contained in cell phones, on company property without express permission from senior and the person(s) being photographed, if applicable.
The rationale is that the use of camera phones invades employees’ privacy and may also breach the confidentiality of the company’s proprietary or trade-secret information.
If you decide to permit the use of camera phones, your policy should prohibit their use in areas where employees have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and where sensitive company information or activities are visible.
