Resolution Adopted by the CCAR

Corporate Invasions of Privacy

Adopted by the CCAR at the 90th Annual Convention of
the Central Conference of American Rabbis
Phoenix, Arizona, March 26-29, 1979

Whereas, many corporations engage in practices that violate the rights of privacy of their employees by administering pre-employment tests that intrude into their financial situation, personal habits,. criminal record and family relationships; and. many corporations conduct locker searches, package checks, electrical surveillance and personality tests; we deplore these corporate invasions of the individual's right to privacy and urge that the Congress conduct an investigation of these unfortunate practices with a view to enacting remedial legislation.
