Electronic Monitoring vs Health Concerns



Electronic Monitoring vs. Health Concerns

Is privacy and electronic monitoring in the work place an issue that is becoming a problem? More and more employees
are being monitored today then ever before and the companies that do it aren't letting
off. While electronic monitoring in

the work place may be the cause of increased stress levels and tension, the benefits far
exceed the harm that it may cause.

Employees don't realize how often electronic monitoring happens in their work place. An estimated twenty million
Americans are subjected to monitoring in their work place, commonly in the form of phone monitoring, E-mail searches,
and searching through the files on their hard drive (Paranoid 435). A poll by MacWorld states that over twenty-one
percent of all employees are monitored at work, and the larger the company, the higher the percentage (Privacy 445).
Unaware of this electronic monitoring, most employees often are not working at their peak
performance due to this type of

scrutiny.
The majority of Americans believe that electronic monitoring should not be allowed. Supreme Court Justice Louis D.
Brandeis states that of all of the freedoms that Americans enjoy, privacy "is the right

  • Cuban missile crisis
    cuban missile crisis Many agree that the Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest the world ever came to nuclear war; but exactly how close did it come?

During those thirteen stressful days, the world’s two biggest superpowers stood on the brink of a nuclear catastrophe.

    Accidents Aircraft Investigation Each mishap has their own characteristics and there is no substitute for good old-fashioned common sense and initiative. Each wrecked aircraft has it’s own story to tell if properly investigated. However Air Force guidelines are quick to point out that investigators in their eagerness seek out the causes, often ignore safe investigation practices and common safety precautions. Air Force Investigators are maybe in even more difficult position due to the hazards th

In 1984, Orwell depicts the susceptibility of today\'s society and its possibility of becoming a realm of lies. In it, the masses live in constant fear, being monitored at all times.

A Totalitarian society is a good example of such a society, because although it provides control for the people, it can deny them a great deal of freedom to express themselves. The fictional society in George Orwell\'s “1984” stands as a metaphor for a Totalitarian society. Communication, personal beliefs, and individual loyalty to the government are all controlled by the inner party, which
