Customer Question
I want to know...

I want to know if my employer can surveil me outside of work, outside of company property?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I thought only law enforcement can surveil you with a warrant signed by a judge?

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Union

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
