Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.
Were you out in public when your picture was taken?
What is the job?
Basically, if you are outside your home or in a public place, such as a restaurant, the law says you have no expectation of privacy and your permission is not required to take your photograph. So, your legal rights were not violated if the picture was taken in an area of the restaurant open to the public (as opposed to a changing area or bathroom, where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy).
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not necessarily a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
Are you still online with me?
Please remember to rate my service so that I am credited by JA for assisting you and also so that I may close the question. Thanks.
