Article by Guido Alberto Inzaghi
In Italy, access to medical documents and records, such as prescriptions, held by the Public Health Authority, the

United States: U.S. Court Affirms Employer’s Right to Read Employees’ Email
06 August 2004
Article by Charles H. Kennedy
U.S. law gives employees few protections against employer surveillance of their workplace communications. Even
without express employee consent, U.S. employers generally may listen to workplace telephone conversations, read
messages sent to and from corporate email accounts, and record and disclose the contents of employee
communications. Employees that bring legal challenges to these practices rarely succeed in U.S. courts. The recent
decision of the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Fraser v. Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, which upholds
an employer’s reading of an employee’s electronic mail email ("email") messages, typifies the obstacles that
complaining employees face under U.S. law. 1
