Chicken Farm Video Surveillance Violates Employee Privacy

A chicken farm caught hell after covert media video of employees committing animal abuse went public. So the farm decided to correct the problem by requiring crews to wear surveillance cameras on the job. But now a BC Privacy Commission investigative report has found the program illegal—a “quick fix” undertaken without consideration of the privacy risks to not only the employees but truckers, contractors and other third parties caught on camera [Investigation Report P17-01: Use of employee surveillance by a BC chicken catching organization,  Nov. 8, 2017]
