The proposed topic can be classified in the scope of “employment law”, “civil liberties” and “Personal data
protection” and this proposal is related to both employment law and data protection law and human rights law
(civil liberties). You should examine both local laws (Ireland law and UK law) and GDPR and assess the issue
with employment law and human rights perspective in the light of European Human Rights Convention. The
link between new technology and respect for privacy at the workplace should be assessed. The GDPR’s Impact
on cybermonitoring (cctv) should be assessed. You should also examine if it is legal to monitor d social media
activities of employees. In the conclusion you should recommend methods for Managing Conflicts on this
matter. In the conclusion you should submit new and unique recommendations for balancing Workers’ Rights
and Dignity with Legitimate Management Interests. A brief attention should be given to the enforcement of the
GDPR in institutions/companies within the European Union.
Your research proposal (or abstract) should be about 3 to 4 pages long and set out the proposed research

Communications) Regulations 200) , the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPAand EU Laws
(gdpr, European Convention on Human Rights (Human Rights Act 1998) and european conventions).
