Laws are always required to cater the needs of both the present and the future technologies. In the present age, there is an increasing magnitude of issues the employees counter at the workplace. A smooth workplace is crucial for both the employers and the employees for a progressive national development. Employee’s privacy at workplace is one among the unspoken heads in the privacy regime. If India lacks a sound privacy protection, there would be a massive drawback in its position on the global map. This paper articulates the existing legislation on employee’s privacy in U.S, EU and India. Further, it points out the loopholes spotted in the Indian Legislation. Finally, the authors compare different country’s models of the employee’s privacy regime and suggest the best befitted model for India.
