Electronic Monitoring Notice
Hamilton College (“Hamilton”) is committed to maintaining a transparent, fair, and secure workplace. Hamilton is not changing its employee monitoring practices as set forth in its policies. Pursuant to New York Civil Rights Law § 52-c, employers are now required to provide employees notice of electronic monitoring practices. Please note that any and all telephone conversations or transmissions, electronic mail or transmissions, or internet access or usage by an employee by any electronic device or system, including but not limited to the use of a computer, telephone, wire, radio or electromagnetic, photoelectronic or photo-optical systems (“Employee Activity”), may be subject to monitoring at any and all times and by any lawful means. Although Hamilton has the ability and right to monitor Employee Activity, no individual is actively monitoring such activities unless required for a particular purpose.
Devices connected to Hamilton’s network or technology systems, or used pursuant to Hamilton’s Appropriate Use of IT Resources, may be monitored or intercepted to the extent such device is used for any Employee Activity. Such devices include Hamilton provided devices and other devices (including personal devices) using Hamilton’s internet, servers, and networks. Monitoring activities can be for any lawful purposes, including but not limited to investigations, system maintenance, quality control, and training purposes. Hamilton reserves the right to monitor Employee Activity via technology systems at any time in compliance with the law.
