This article from Findlaw offers an overview of workplace privacy issues as well as steps that employers may take to protect their trade secrets, stating:

"Although there are no guarantees that trade secrets won't be revealed, there are steps the employer can take to make it less likely to happen. Monitoring the equipment and having communications policies in place will put employees on notice that the employer is serious about protecting its proprietary information. Additionally, these policies will help to position the employer to vindicate its rights in the event of unauthorized disclosure."
