The Intersecting Lines – Business Interests and Personal Autonomy
|Date||Wednesday 12 September 2018|
|Time||9am - 11am|
|Presenter||Her Honour Chief Judge Christina Inglis|
The Chief Judge points out that while the European Union has a statement on the right to privacy, such a statement is lacking in New Zealand. How are the twin objectives of protecting employers’ business interests and protecting the rights of employees to some expectation of privacy, including a lack of intrusion by their employer into their personal lives, to be reconciled? What happens when private actions and statements are perceived to have a negative impact on the employer? In this world of ever-changing and developing modes of employment, the lines shift and blur. The Chief Judge raises a number of questions and illustrates the issues with reference to some of the case law in New Zealand.
