The School protects personal information of its employees and collects personal information about them only for purposes relevant to the School’s business as per Privacy in the Workplace.
Personal information means information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee. Employees’ personal information refers to those records like the personnel file and other documents collected and used to provide services or support like pay or benefits information.
All personal health information shall be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information and may only be used for the identified purposes.
Notwithstanding the notion of employee personal information, there shall be no expectation of privacy for communications made through the use of the school’s equipment (for example, e-mail, internet/intranet activities, voicemail, computer files and diskettes), as well as workspaces (for example, desks, lockers, and vehicles).
The School reserves the right to monitor or search any and all school property at any time, where it determines on reasonable grounds that this is required, for example:
- In the interests of the safety and protection of employee and students or the school
- In the event the School suspects an employee of fraud, theft, undeclared conflict of interest or other situation which may cause prejudice to an employee or the School or its reputation
