It has been amended to clarify the types of workplace surveillance the University conducts, including surveillance in the form of routine monitoring that does not involve active surveillance; set out the circumstances in which the University is authorised to conduct workplace surveillance; specify more rigorous notice requirements to staff who are subject to workplace surveillance; establish a more rigorous process for obtaining approval to conduct workplace surveillance or access surveillance information or records; and include updates to keep pace with changes to technology.
