Posting Employee Photos in Company Website
Question: Should we get permission from our employees before posting pictures of them on our company website?
Yes, we recommend obtaining written consent from employees before posting pictures of them on company websites or social media.
Using someone's picture without their consent could violate their right to privacy. Some employees may have reasons for not wanting the public to know where they work (for example, if they are the victim of stalking), or they simply may not feel comfortable having an image of their face published online.
When obtaining consent from your employees, let them know how you intend to use photos of them and that they should sign the authorization only if they feel comfortable doing so.
