Dan Michaluk Quoted in The Lawyers Weekly
Hicks Morley’s Dan Michaluk was quoted in the November 2, 2012 edition of The Lawyers Weekly. In an article entitled “Some digital privacy due onwork devices”, Dan comments on the significant decision made by the Supreme Court of Canada on workplace privacy in R v. Cole. In this case, it was unanimously held that employees have a diminished, but reasonable, expectation of privacy in personal information stored on an employer-issued computer. Dan explains employers may continue to access information stored on their work systems for their legitimate purposes, though they should now use more thorough and detailed policy to establish a clear management right.
