I have recently begun working in a retail environment.  We have over 40 cameras around the whole property.  I need a resource to determine the legal requirements of using video to monitor and document employee’s performance.

Generally speaking (for private employers) it’s a State specific issue regarding the employee’s rigtht privacy.  Some states allow employers to visually record employee activity, but not audiotape.  In unionized workplaces, this might be a subject for bargaining.  Here are some links that might help you get started:
