This paper discusses how, as technology advances, employers worldwide are faced with the problem of employees' ill usage of the communication media and how, in order to reduce these risks, employers are now turning towards technology monitoring, which would enable them to keep a strict watch over their employees. It examines how many issues have arisen as a result of workplace monitoring, as well as the debate on whether this act by employers is ethically correct or not. It highlights the advantages of workplace monitoring and proves how it may become beneficial for both the employer and the employee. It also looks at the different types of workplace monitoring and the results obtained from them.

From the Paper:

"Workplace monitoring can be divided into various categories. The first category is concerned with Call monitoring. Call monitoring basically involves listening to live phone calls and recording one's observations. "The most important aspect of this system is the observer. The observer can sit next to the person making the call, which can be helpful with new employees who need training tips. The observer can also be a secret caller and judge the phone representative by playing a customer role" (Kristin Morgan, Types Of Employee-Monitoring Systems In The Workplace). As a result of call monitoring, an employee would be well aware of the surveillance and would always try his/her best not to violate the company's policies."
