Publication of pictures on Internet

What can we do with photos of the employees?


The Human Resources Department (HRD) of a private company kept a photo of each employee in their personal file, which allowed them to make up their identity cards.


Without asking permission, the HRD puts these pictures up on the website of the organization.


When the employees realized this and during a lively coffee break they opposed this publication.


An employee filed a complaint for violation of his image rights.


Authorisation is required from the employees concerned when their photos are used.

timbre signification
