Workplace Surveillance Meets Remote Work (hosted by Meyership Leadership Lab)

Learn about the rising use of digital tools to surveil remote workers, and dive into a new report on this growing privacy and security issue



As the pandemic forced a dramatic shift to working from home, employers have increasingly used surveillance technologies to track, monitor, and collect data on the behaviours and movements of remote workers. Workplace Surveillance and Remote Work, a new report by the Cybersecure Policy Exchange, finds that the latest digital developments in workplace surveillance have countless privacy and security concerns—raising questions about data protection, rights, power, and inequities.

On Friday, November 5th from 12:00 – 1:15pm (ET), join us for a virtual panel discussion on the rising use of workplace surveillance and remote work in Canada. What are the implications? How do we ensure a safe and productive workforce while we prioritize the well-being and security of employees?

Our expert panelists explore this key issue:

Kirstie Ball, Professor of Management, University of St. Andrews

Jessica Kearsey, Partner, Deloitte Legal Canada

Peggy Nash, Chair, Advisory Committee, Centre for Labour Management Relations

Vass Bednar (Moderator), Executive Director, Master of Public Policy in Digital Society Program, McMaster University

M.J. Masoodi (Report Presentation), Senior Policy Analyst, Ryerson Leadership Lab

Read our corresponding report, Workplace Surveillance and Remote Work, which dives into the rise of worker surveillance in Canada, mediated through rapid developments in digital technology and further accelerated by the pandemic. The event will brief attendees on recommendations and research findings included in the report.

The event is finished.
