Thank you for the well thought out reply and the information on Canadian employment law.
The only reason that I made the comment about the laptop and privacy is that we Americans tend to freak out about privacy laws, and I do know that
some privacy laws apply in an employer/employee relationship.
I do not know what the exacts of the privacy laws are however.
In the states, we have huge issues with jurisdiction and I have no idea how the jurisdiction issue would affect privacy laws and employment.
One poster related a story concerning their own battle against a corporation, and it pretty well summed up the way statutory law works in the states.
If someone has enough money, then they are generally subject to different statutory enforcement than someone without money.
The judges in civil law (contract) courtrooms in the states are not bound by common law stare decisis, but rather the concept of jurisprudence
They can literally do whatever they wish to do in a courtroom, they might be removed from the bench if they do something really ridiculous, but this
is a judicial right that is similar to pardons issued by executives.
Even though a judge can technically do whatever they wish to do, they had better keep it looking on the level if they wish to be re-elected.
Anyhoo... I am totally tangential.
Once again, sincere thanks on the well thought out reply.
