Is it legal for a California state employer to install a hidden surveylance to monitor their emplyees?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

It depends on the situation, but yes, it probably would be legal.

Due to the diminished expectation of privacy in the workplace, it is typically legal for a California state employer to install surveylance cameras to monitor their employees.

However, the courts would balance the employer's need to conduct surveillance against the employee's expectation of privacy to determine whether their privacy rights are being violated.
