Chapter 14 Question 1

1. Do employees need to worry about the data collected by their employers?

It is tempting to say No, on the grounds that if you are a perfect employee, you have nothing to fear. But even if you are a perfect employee, your employer or manager might not be so nice. Many innocent comments or statements could be taken out of context and used against someone—particularly when it is so easy to alter computer records. While it is nice to believe that everyone (employees and employers) is friendly and supportive, it is rarely true.
