Answer for Consent for Photo/Voice Use – PIPEDA

Great question… 
 
Ideally, consent must be obtained prior to each time a photo/video/voice, etc. of an employee is taken for potential use, however that can be tough.
Employers should take the proactive step of creating a consent form with respect to the use of employee photographs.  Such a form should outline the purposes for which an employee is to provide a photograph to the employer, and how that photograph may be used and disclosed by the employer.  The use of a written consent form provides employees with information regarding the use of their photographs and provides employers with a measure of protection against possible future privacy complaints.
The consent should cover the purposes for using the photo/video, how the material will be used, and that consent is  voluntary.  Before using employee’s photos/voice employers should inform employees if they will be allowed to see it before it is published. If you are not able to specifically explain why you need a particular piece of personal information, you increase the chances of employees being wary of your practices.

(b) the individual voluntarily provides the personal information to the organization for that purpose
