Workplace privacy

On April 27, 2007, the Ministry of Labor enacted the Administrative Resolution 650-07. It establishes, in article 5, that the employer must have privacy policies aimed to protect employees' personal data, ensuring the proportionality and adequate data protection principles, and that the data will be used with "unequivocal aims established at the moment of collection." Security cameras can only be installed in public areas, banning their installation in areas where the employees show private behaviors such as bathrooms, showers, and bedrooms among others.[11]
