Is it illegal to have CCTV in places such as gym changing rooms and locker rooms?

Is it legal to have CCTV cameras or any form of CCTV in changing rooms and locker rooms?

Of course it isn’t legal, unless you have permission from the users. That is considered an invasion of privacy, same as putting one in the bathroom.

    Yes. It is a basic privacy issue.

    It is only illegal to have CCTV in an area where privacy is expected. In locker rooms within a gym such as Gold’s Gym there is little expectation of privacy since people can come and go as they please.

    However, in a changing room, there is a different expectation of privacy as there is a lock on the door. You can have a CCTV just outside the dressing room, but not inside.

    As for the locker room, you can probably have a CCTV in certain areas, but they may be required to let you know.

    In the U.S. it very illegal.

    When you are in a public place, privacy is not expected nor protected. CCTV cameras are permitted in these places.

    If you are in a place that a reasonable person would consider private (such as bathroom stalls and changing rooms) then your privacy is protected by Federal law and any type of cameras are illegal.

    if i were getting beat up in the locker room, I would hope there was CCTV, but if I was getting undressed etc I would hope there wasnt.

    I guess that there has to be CCTV and the people who view it need to be discretional. I think its totally legal as long as people know that its going on and can maybe chioose to get changed in a private cubicle.
