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.
