No, responded the Madras High Court to a petition by an employee union which wanted its company to remove CCTV cameras installed in its restrooms.
The union of Raptakos Bratt and Company in Velachery in its petition complained that the management installed 38 CCTV cameras in its factory including restrooms, reported New Indian Express.
The counsel for the company submitted in this regard that the employer had the liberty to install CCTV cameras anywhere on the facility to keep track of employees and their performance, said the report.
However, Justice CS Kannan said that restrooms are meant for relaxing and relieving themselves, he then directed the firm to remove the CCTVs installed in the restrooms. The company has 78 employees, which includes 10 women.
