Is THAREJA.AI legal?

Yes, THAREJA.AI is legal and does not violate any privacy guidelines and regulations when used correctly. We will not track your activity without your consent, and protecting your data is one of our top priorities.

We highly recommend disclosing when and how you are using THAREJA.AI to any employees or contractors before they download the app. This helps ensure transparency and gives them a chance to fully understand what the software does.

Please note: This is not legal advice. Consult with your legal counsel should you have concerns regarding your business and its employees.

US employee monitoring laws

Employee monitoring is generally legal in the United States, with the requirement being employee consent. This is covered in the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, which allows monitoring in the workplace under 18 U.S. Code § 2511:

“(iv) such use or endeavor to use (A) takes place on the premises of any business or other commercial establishment the operations of which affect interstate or foreign commerce; or (B) obtains or is for the purpose of obtaining information relating to the operations of any business or other commercial establishment the operations of which affect interstate or foreign commerce;”

Federal laws don’t require businesses to get permission to monitor their employees, but it ultimately depends on the state in which you’re operating.

For instance, New York requires businesses to provide a written notice to employees upon hiring — and once per year — that they will be monitored (NY A1920A). How they will be monitored should also be clearly specified.

THAREJA.AI does not violate any laws in this scenario (or in other states with the same guidelines as New York), as only your team members have control over when to track their work. They’ll also have to give consent and grant permissions when they download the apps.

However, it’s best to consult with legal counsel before proceeding should you have questions or concerns.

EU monitoring laws

EU monitoring laws are heavily dependent on the GDPR law, which permits the act as long as employee consent is present and users have full access to their data. THAREJA.AI will never track activity without your knowledge and you are given full control over your data.

Canadian monitoring laws

Businesses in Canada are also allowed to record their employees’ work, provided that you establish a clear monitoring policy and get consent from your employees. Employees have the right to refuse to be monitored and they should be given full access to their collected data.

In THAREJA’s case, this would mean their tracked time, screenshots taken from their devices, and activity reports. According to section 5(3) of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA):

“ An organization may collect, use or disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider are appropriate in the circumstances.”
