France’s data protection authority, the CNIL, fined Uniontrad Company 20,000 euros for the video surveillance systems it set up to monitor its employees. Staff members filed complaints with the CNIL between 2013 and 2017 over the filming. The CNIL conducted an investigation in February 2018, when it found the cameras not only recorded employees’ activities continuously, but staff members were also never told exactly what was chronicled. The CNIL ordered Uniontrad to change its practices; however, a second audit in October 2018 found the company had not taken any action for the violations. Uniontrad has a two-month period to remedy its surveillance practices or face a 200 euro fine for each day it remains in noncompliance. (Original article is in French.)
