Before installing a CCTV system, management should inform their staff and explain the reasons to justify the decision:

  • Protection of the company assets.
  • Protection of employees working alone in case of an accident.
  •  Training purposes
  •  Revised procedures
  • Review of working methods
  • Government requirements, such as C-TPAT
  •  Existence or potential fraud, theft or vandalism

In order to be legally acceptable, the employer should avoid penalties for low productivity on the basis of recorded data.
Hidden cameras may be used when there is a reasonable doubt to believe that there is fraud and that it cannot be proven otherwise. It is not allowed to use hidden cameras in places where privacy can really be compromised: Toilets, changing rooms, etc..
