  2. In-employment (or post-employment) screening regarding employees and their private life through the use of social media,
  3. Monitoring Information and Communications Technologies (“ICT”) usage in the workplace – trhis hsould be addressed in a Data Protection Impact Assessment,
  4. Monitoring ICT usage outside the workplace – e.g. into the domestic sphere through homeworking, remote working, “bring-your-own-device” policiesand so forth,
  5. Monitoring time and attendance,
  6. Video monitoring systems – employers can still reduce camera sizes to avoid monitoring the worker’s facial expressions;
