In this time of ubiquitous electronic communication, the boundaries of privacy rights in the workplace have become a moving target. Important issues have arisen concerning an employee’s right to privacy in those communications when they occur in and around the workplace. Efforts by employees to assert privacy rights in response to employer demands have sparked significant legal discussion. 

Jay Shapiro, co-chair of the Cyber Law and Data Privacy Group, explores those issues as well as the role of the Fourth Amendment in his article, "Reasonable Expectations of Privacy in a Not-So-Private Electronic World."
