Publication of personal information regarding work-related accidents constitutes a violation of Privacy right On 3 February 2016, a regional High Court of Justice stated that the publication in a clipboard of personal information from some employees who suffered work-related accidents constitutes a violation of the privacy right. The company used to publish in a clipboard located at the entrance of the building a report regarding work-related accidents. Said report usually included the name of the employee who suffered the accident and the description of the same, the injured suffered by the employee and the part of the body that was injured. As a consequence, one of the employees filed a lawsuit claiming a compensation for the violation of its moral right considering that her privacy right had been infringed. According to the High Court, the fact that the clipboard was located at the entrance of the building implied that the information could be seen not only by the employees of the company but by anyone who enters the building. Thus, the High Court argues that the information published infringes the privacy right of the worker. The publication of the accident might be justified in order to avoid future accidents but the identification of the employee is not acceptable.
