Abstract

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic pandemic, the Internet invades our life aspects and activities, the way we work or shop has changed, the educational system has changed, and the social structure and many other things in our lives have changed. In this research work, we analyze three hypotheses regarding electronic monitoring during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first hypothesis is the relationship between Electronic Monitoring and safety, the second is the relationship between Electronic Monitoring and privacy, and the third is related to acceptance of electronic monitoring in the workplace. For that, we have surveyed the COVID-19 pandemic to measure the effects of new technologies-in particular-electronic monitoring on productivity, creativity, and the effect of social networks in increasing the acceptance of electronic monitoring in the workplace. Our results show that the attitudes toward electronic monitoring have not changed over the years and a higher percentage of employees who were polled do not accept being monitored at the workplace, which means the introduction of new technologies in our life has not changed the opinion of people about electronic monitoring.
