Electronic Monitoring in the Netherlands
EM Conference/CEP/speech Sjef van Gennip/7 mei 2009

The results of the evaluation report from the Scientific Research and Documentation Centre show that “Electronic Monitoring is seen as a punishment by the convicted”. According to the participants the intervention is definitely a punishment: it is very difficult and is a big test of your self-discipline and responsibility. Electronic Monitoring, also known as EM, with radio frequency identification equipment started as an experiment in the North of the Netherlands in 1995. The experiment lasted 2 years. A suspect or a convict would have a receiver placed in their home and would have to wear a transmitter. The evaluation of the Scientific Research and Documentation Centre was clear: “EM is a feasible alternative for the implementation of an unconditional prison sentence”. The researchers at the SRDC write: “This is true for both the application for community service and for detention sentences.” The report also shows that Electronic Monitoring is used more in cases of detention sentences than in the area of judicial verdicts. Judges seem to be reluctant to choose to use Electronic Monitoring as an instrument to keep track of the people. And to make sure their parole officer can check up on them. I believe this is disappointing, but we - as an organisation - are going to work hard on this. I will get back to this in a minute while I speak about the developments over the last few years. As of the first of January nineteen ninety nine EM is used in the application of a penitentiary programme all over the country. Detainees with a long punishment receive the possibility to already get used to their return into society. This is done under strict supervision and with help of standard electronic monitoring with radio frequency identification. Also, the use of a program like this…...

Social Security in the Netherlands

...Social Security Systems in the Netherlands From decades social security policies are in question all across Europe. Moreover, the future expectations of changes in the social security systems due to the variations in household structures and ageing of the society bear new social security systems. As most of the European countries the Netherlands, had a substantial growth in the 1960s. After the oil crises, the economy of the Netherlands worsened. Despite the successful creation of a large number of new jobs in the 1980s the growth of unemployment continued and remained persistent in character and still today. However, the social security system in the Netherlands is not alike to the 1970s and 1980s. The Dutch government expenditure on social benefits is characteristic of the well-developed welfare states - at 27.4 percent it is now above the EU average of 22.9 percent. It is among the high taxation countries and over average GDP per capita. Public employment is low and it has one of the lowest poverty rates. The extraordinary level of economic growth of the 1960s created the economic surplus in the Netherlands but by the world’s two oil crisis in the early 1970s the economic climate started to deteriorate. A stunning increase of unemployment in the late 1970s provoked a policy of labor cost reduction and cuts in the social security budget. It was believed that an increase in the real wages and social benefits would imply a further rise of unemployment. Moreover, it was...

...CONCEPT PAPER TOPIC: AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE CHALLENGES INFLUENCING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS SYSTEMS FOR HIVCARE PATIENT MONITORING AND CLINICAL MANAGEMENT. (A case study of Mbagathi District Hospital and Makadara Health Centre in Nairobi County) INTRODUCTION – BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY. The implementation of electronic medical records (EMR) systems is a complex process that is receiving more focus in developing countries to support understaffed and overcrowded health facilities deal with the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Timely access to accurate and relevant health and medical information is crucial to the development and administration of healthcare services, research and teaching. The advent of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has brought many opportunities and challenges in the provision of information services in the health sector worldwide. The current health situation of many developing countries is a dire one, with many facing double and triple burden of disease (ie infectious and chronic) one contributor to this condition is the HIV/AIDS epidemic. HIV/AIDS has the highest prevalence in developing countries, about 68% (22.5 million) of the approximately 33 million people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) reside in sub-Saharan Africa where as HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death(UNAIDS & WHO,2007). In Kenya the number living with HIV/AIDS as per the NASCOP National HIV indicators report 2011 there were 1.6million, only reported......

...Netherlands In the Netherlands they are known for their commercial history and famed adaptability. This means that they import goods to re-export them at a profit. Fifty percent of all trucks in Europe are from the Netherlands. Some of the cultural differences between the United States and the Netherlands are work floor, education, business structures, management style, communication styles and prestige. Work Floor In the United States workers what to be rewarded for a job well done. Some companies may give out an employee of the month to the best performing employee or some might give out bonuses for performing well. In the Netherlands it is a general opinion that it is normal to do a good job, expected without reward. Also Dutch employees will stay with one company for a long period of time, showing their loyalty and interest in long-term goals. Another big difference is the labor laws. The Dutch laws are very stringent which make it difficult to dismiss employees. So for a company to downsize it is difficult and can be very costly. Education Education and grades are much more important in the United States than in the Netherlands. In the US having a degree is about the only way one will get very far in any business anymore. The Dutch on the other hand as long as you have a diploma that is enough and grades don’t matter. With that being said the Dutch as a nation are highly educated.

...REPORT ON RELEVANT ISSUES OF ELECTRONIC MONITORING OF EMPOYEES AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS MADE. Introduction Actual monitoring of employees in workplace has been in existence for some time now; Frederick Taylor used time and motion studies to analyze the work practices of various types of employee. But nowadays, the electronic monitoring will give the employers the more information of all the employees’ work activities in a detailed way (Ottensmeyer and Heroux, 1991). They are some network tools that can capture user log in details, the file accessed, the time it was accessed and so many other things. What is Electronic Monitoring? Electronic monitoring can be seen in different concepts, firstly, it can be seen by the way employers will use electronic devices to review and measure the employees work performance, for instance, the employer may decide to review the employee’s incoming and outgoing mails to see how he/she relate with the customers whether is satisfactorily. Secondly, it can be seen as electronic surveillance in such a way that the employer will use the electronic devices to know what the employee does, and also review the sites he visited for the day and check whether the site is adult site or gamble site (King, 2008). The Frequency of Electronic Monitoring within the company An employee maybe unaware how he is being monitored, but research showed that more than 20 millions of employees have their emails being search by their employers; in......

Monitoring Pel Electronic Assembly Plant

...be more detail on the soldering fume effects in general and the plan of conducting personal exposure monitoring of 100 workers exposed to solder fumes in an electronic component assembly plant. SOLDERING FUMES 4. Manufacturers of flux usually point out that inhaling flux fumes, created when flux is heated to soldering temperatures, will cause irritation to nose, throat and respiratory organs. Health authorities also state that extended or repeated exposure to rosin flux may cause hypersensitivity and substance to occupational asthma. The base product found in conventional flux is called colophony. Colophony is the translucent amber collared rosin obtained when turpentine is distilled from the resin of pine trees. Colophony has been widely used in soldering processes for many years. 5. Colophony is a mixture of approximately 90% resin acid, mostly abiotic acid with 10% neutral material such as stilbenederivatives, and different kinds of hydrocarbons. When flux is heated, airborne products are generated including aliphatic aldehydes such as formaldehyde. Most fluxes are also composed of organic amine hydrochloride, an activator helping to clean the soldering area. When heated, it releases hydrochloric acid and other gases containing benzene, toluene, styrene, phenol, chlorophenol and isopropyl alcohol. Based on previous studies that have been made on workers in the electronic industry, mostly in the United States, and England. These studies show that at least 20% of the......

Electronic Monitoring

...The widespread use of electronic devices during the Information Age has led to the electronic monitoring of employees by employers. It has become necessary for employers to provide computers, email, and internet access to its employees to conduct business efficiently. This type of access has provided misguided employees with the opportunity to conduct personal business and illegal activities at work. In an effort to address these risks many employers have implemented electronic monitoring tools. Employee monitoring is generally considered to be any type of tracking method used to watch what an employee does while at work. Electronic monitoring is monitoring employees' e-mail, computer files, voice mail, telephone use, as well as the use of video and audio surveillance, computer network monitoring, and keystroke monitoring. According to a 2008 survey done by the American Management Association, sixty six percent of the respondents stated that they were engaged in the electronic monitoring of their employees. Many reasons exist for employers to electronically monitor their employees. The monitoring of employees can lead to results that are beneficial to the employer. One reason employers cite for monitoring employees is to keep employee productivity from decreasing. Internet access allows employees to surf the internet for business purposes but employers fear that they will use it unproductively by visiting travel websites, recipe sites, message boards, shopping......

Electronic Monitoring and House Arrest

...Introduction to Criminal Justice Electronic Monitoring and House Arrest Katelyn Fritz November 24, 2013 Introduction Electronic Monitoring (EM) and house arrest (HA) is a system that has been met with both trepidation and acceptance since its integration in the 1980’s. Though it goes by many names, including Community Sentencing and Intermediate sanctions, it still maintains a single identity. It is a form of punishment for offenders as an alternative to incarceration. This program applies to offenders chosen at the judge’s discretion and is based upon the offenders compliance, the nature of the infraction, and the burden on the system. Involved is a period of time where the offender is confined to his home under the supervision of a probation officer and some form of electronic monitoring. These monitoring options include the random call method (RC), an ankle monitor using radio frequency (RF) or GPS technology, or a combination thereof (Burell & Gable, 2008). Electronic monitoring is touted as an ideal means of reducing overcrowding in jails and prisons, but how effect is electronic monitoring and house arrest really? More than 30 years after its integration, there are several issues that have developed, or that have yet to be resolved. To demonstrate this lets us look at one example that occurred in the year 2000. Gerald A. Jones, a young, 18 year old man, was convicted of a robbery after sticking a gun into a woman’s face and stealing her watch. As......

INTRODUCTION Due to the continuous evolving of surveillance technology, the firm of Just Information Communication Technology Limited (JICTL) is desirous to implement a system that will enable it monitor their employee electronically in order to measure their productivity. Since “one of the biggest issues of the information age is that of privacy” (Andrew A. Adams & Rachel J. Mccrindle, 2011, P. 211). This report will address the relevant issues on privacy with regards to implementing this project and make necessary recommendations. ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE OF HUMAN (EMPLOYEE) IN A WORK PLACE Electronic surveillance of employees in a work place can be described as the monitoring of the activities (work conduct) of employees by the employer by the means of electronic device. The monitoring aspect may include some or all of the following areas: • E-mail • Voice mail • Employee location • Telephone conversation • Internet usage • CCTV (Video surveillance) etc. There are various reasons why employers may want to monitor the activities of their employee. One of such reasons is to ensure system security and operation (Andrew A. Adams & Rachel J. Mccrindle, 2011, P. 212-218). The firm of JICTL is implementing this system for the purpose of measuring employee productivity. For the fact that electronic communication has become so important in the modern workplace with the use of e-mail, the internet, telecommuting, and corporate intranets,......
