Hi there, I have a situation where I have found out that a company I am contracted to in the UK are video recording my Skype lessons with students (I am an Online English tutor) without consent. I feel violated but uncertain whether there is a legal aspect here in Australia I can bring to their attention as this is not the first time I have told them I do not appreciate being filmed without my knowledge. I was also "informed" that all videos can be used as marketing material to the company's discretion and I am NOT ok with this. I would really like to bring this to their attention without jeopardising my employment contract with them, although I am feeling like their ethics aren't exactly up to scratch. Any help would be most appreciated. Here's a excerpt of what I have drafted up but I feel it's a bit too "forward" for the British / Spanish to not take personally. -- I finally located the email that you sent back in March 2015 specifying that observation lessons will be recorded. It also mentioned that the footage could be used as marketing material. Despite suspecting that you were conducting mystery quality control lessons (which I am completely fine with), it is considered a criminal offence here in Australia to record anyone without the individual’s knowledge or written consent of those who are being filmed - something I have already spoken about with "----" earlier this year. ("----" is one of the co-founders of the school). I am just making you aware of this as I never received any request for written consent for taking video footage and I honestly haven’t been able to shake the feelings of violation. I would appreciate that no footage that has been taken up to date is to be used as marketing material and I suggest that you provide some general guideline over how often you intend to take footage for “observations purposes”. As the current arrangement stands (with no guidelines or anywhere where this information can be found), I am not comfortable with Skype sessions being recorded without any limitations. If some general guidelines are provided with respect to the ethical aspect of this monitoring, I would be more comfortable with how lessons are observed in future.
