Dan Michaluk reports:
On October 19th the Supreme Court of Canada issued a much-awaited decision for employers across Canada. In R v Cole, it affirmed a Court of Appeal for Ontario finding that a school teacher had a reasonable expectation of privacy in a work-issued laptop. The Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers intervened in Cole at the Supreme Court of Canada on behalf of its management counsel members and (more generally) on behalf of Canadian employers. This note explains why CACE is pleased with the outcome, which establishes a strong foundation for continued employer access to information stored on work systems.
