A: It may not be legal to allow the former manager who no longer works for the bar to continue to monitor the cameras from home because the former employee no longer has a legitimate purpose. The bar owner should definitely change the passwords and should implement procedures to ensure that the passwords are changes promptly any time an employee with the passwords quits or is fired.
