At the beginning of the twenty-first century the term 'privacy' gained new prominence around the world, but in the legal arena it is still a concept in 'disarray'. Enclosing it within legal frameworks seems to be a particularly difficult task in the employment context, where encroachments upon privacy are not only potentially more frequent, but also, and most importantly, qualitatively different from those taking place in other areas of modern society. This book suggests that these problems can only be addressed by the development of a holistic approach to its protection, an approach that addresses the issue of not only contemporary regulation but also the conceptualization, adjudication, and common (public) perception of employees' privacy. The book draws on a comprehensive analysis of the conceptual as well as regulatory convergences and divergences between European, American and Canadian models of privacy protection, to reconsider the conceptual and normative foundations of the contemporary paradigm of employees' privacy and to elucidate the pillars of a holistic approach to the protection of right to privacy in employment.

Information and knowledge have become crucial factors in modern labour markets. In this context, labour-management relations are characterised by an increasing and considerable flow of information. These developments are influenced by new management techniques, such as human resources management, in which the individual is identified as a key element in business success. Furthermore, there is the globalisation of the economy, the increase of international corporate mergers and the unfolding of the network society, which goes hand in hand with technological innovations. These developments not only multiplied the needs for information and the flow of data in employment relations, but also improved techniques of data processing revealing sensitive data of employees. This book deals with employment privacy law, a field of knowledge that increasingly gains influence in legal theory and daily practice. It concentrates on the legal regulation of general human resources data as well as sensitve data in the employment context. The book is developed within a comparative perspective, providing an overview and analysis of the Law of each Member State of the European Union in the field of study. It is completed by a comparative summary. Information and insights in this book will be of great value for practicing lawyers, human resources managers, academics, interest groups and policy makers. The specific issue of monitoring and surveillance in the workplace is covered in another highly recommended book,

"This book examines the emerging Irish jurisprudence on privacy rights, focusing in particular on how media interference can infringe such rights and on the interaction with the right to freedom of expression. It examines the topic from a comparative perspective, making extensive reference to relevant case law from both common and civil law jurisdictions as well as to decisions of the European Court of Human Rights. While the progress of the draft Privacy Bill published in 2006 appears to have stalled, the issue of how privacy rights may be protected is coming before the courts on an increasingly frequent basis." "This groundbreaking new work provides an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of this area of the law. It discusses potential legal strategies for the protection of privacy rights, considering, in particular, the question of whether privacy should be protected by legislation or by the incremental development of the law by the courts." "This book will provide invaluable to both practitioners and academics and is written in a readable and accessible style."--BOOK JACKET.
