    Subject: Law on personal integrity in working life
    I don't know if this interests the Politech readers, but you might find it
    interesting nevertheless.
    A Swedish committee today presented a draft for a law on protection of
    personal integrity in working life. The proposed law deals with logging of
    data, supervision of email and other technical and non-technical privacy
    issues. As a point of departure, the draft law proposes the introduction
    of a prohibition against the employer's reading employees' private e-mail
    or other private electronic data.
