Germany To Grant Privacy At the Workplace

An anonymous reader writes “The German government is proposing a bill deciding employees have an expectation of privacy at the workplace (translated article). Among other provisions, the bill would ban employers from surveilling their employees by cameras or logging and reading their emails. Also, potential employers would not be allowed to view an applicant’s profile at Facebook or any other social network that hasn’t actually been made for this purpose.”
