Good morning,

There's not a waiver, per se, but there is no expectation of privacy in certain situations where there would be (not to sound redundant) no expectation of privacy. For example, there is no expectation of privacy in a public setting like a mall or restaurant. Similarly, employers can use audio/video surveillance on employees (often state law requires that they give them notice), so long as the surveillance does not extend into areas where privacy would be expected, such as the locker room and bathrooms.

Of course individuals have an expectation to privacy in places like their own homes.
