To reach to a significant conclusion about privacy rights in a workplace, we have to consider about rules and regulations, ethics in the workplace without invading anyone’s privacy or rights and employees’ must have their own responsibilities and have a common understanding of the ethical basis of justice and a thorough understanding of individual and organizational concerns and motivations. (Mujtaba, B. G. 2003) stated that employee monitoring is an act of watching and checking employees' actions during the working hours using employer’s equipment. Since employee monitoring has occurred as a necessity, it causes concerns to both employers and employees with the ethical implications of constant monitoring. Employers use monitoring devices to keep track of their employees' actions and to increase productivity of work, some employees feel that too much monitoring can be an invasion of their privacy. Therefore, the ethics of monitoring employees is a very controversial issue.

This can lead to misunderstandings and a decrease in productivity.

The root causes of these vacancies can be attributed to natural attrition through retirements, however, it is the employees who have left for different reasons that I am focused on. In order to better understand why these vacancies are not being replenished with fresh talent, I have to carefully evaluate the clients hiring strategy and help them develop a more proactive solution that will give them a competitive advantage over their competition (Cohen, 2009). The next area of concern and focus will be on employee retention. One of the chief complaints of the client when retaining my services is the company’s issues with retention of top talent (Wright, 2011). For unclear reasons, an unusually high number of talented employees are leaving and stating their discontent with the workplace as a key reason (Wright, 2011).

Many employees questioned the policy as to whether or not the department could dictate what type of posts or photos were used during their personal time. However, this policy was important to stress that in the type of work that the department does it is relevant because this content may be used in court or in another arena to discredit the employee or the department. Once implemented, the policy did make employees to think twice prior to posting content that could be related to his/her work. I still believe that there are policies lacking on discrimination of transgender employees and respect among employees. Organizations stress the policies not tolerating discrimination for employees being part of a protected class without recognizing that the law does not protect transgender individuals from discrimination.
