Supervision in the workplace is essential as in this way we discover errors, theft and observe workers. However, supervision makes employees feel they do not have enough privacy. With the development of information technology, employers are getting new possibilities with which to control employees in the workplace. Slovenian legislation lays down conditions for the use of modern technology as well as the limits of permissible use. Abuse occurs mainly in the case of unauthorized use of technology in the areas of video, mobile, Internet and e-mail surveillance as well as the use of biometrics. The survey results show that 63% of Slovenian companies do not use information technology for surveillance in the workplace, and that 90% of executives / managers take into account moral and ethical principles when carrying out the controls.

Keywords: electronic surveillance, electronic communication, supervision of employees, workplace privacy
