Voyeurism & Hidden Cameras
Some sexual predators place hidden cameras in hotels, bathrooms, or other private spaces. If a business, like a hotel for example, fails to protect individuals from being exploited by a hidden camera, the business may be legally liable.
Background checks, proper screening and adequate supervision go a long way toward preventing employees, volunteers or others from placing hidden cameras in hotel rooms, bathrooms, school locker rooms or other private places. Unfortunately, though, such behavior goes undetected, and peoples’ privacy is violated. If an institution, like a school or hotel, negligently fails to detect a hidden camera, the entity may be liable.
