In the recent decision of R. v Cole,  S.C.J. No. 53, the Supreme Court of Canada considered the admissibility of evidence in a criminal trial of a teacher found to have child pornography on an employer-provided laptop computer. In reaching its decision the Supreme Court of Canada made a number of important observations regarding the level of privacy that an employee may have with respect to his or her workplace computer. Specifically, employers should take note that the Supreme Court of Canada found that employees may have a reasonable expectation of privacy vis-à-vis electronic devices provided to them by their employers.
