You don’t have privacy at work. You’re in an employer owned/leased space, on an employer issued laptop, communicating via email on licenses paid for by your employer.

Many workplaces have cameras in them (e.g. retail stores). This would not be abnormal.

Only place it would be an invasion of privacy would be the bathroom. Every other inch of the office is fair game.

The question for you is what did you do?

Just wondering...what are you concerned was recorded?

Did you do a Charlie Runkle??? 🤔

Most any office building will have cameras on entry points, the immediate outdoor areas, and the building lobby. Tenants will generally have similar in their space, with a mix of live and dummy cameras throughout the workspace, excluding restrooms. Whether they are actively watched and how long recordings are kept varies widely.

Fun fact - In some states cameras directly outside of the bathrooms are also illegal.

The answers above all seem to apply in the US (where, as stated above, employees generally do not have an expectation of privacy, although there are limits to this beyond just no cameras in the bathroom). In Europe it’s common to require approval from the works council before installing CCTVs in the workplace.
