Workplace surveillance common, invasive and intense

Employers are monitoring employees activities across a broad spectrum of functions – including your health, your physical activity, even attempting to measure your mood.  At least one company required employees to have an app on their smart phone – which was then used to track the employee’s whereabouts and activities 24 x 7, including when they were not on the job.

In the case of health tracking, comply or the company effectively makes your health insurance benefits cost more.

Stop and think and make a note of all the places your are monitored.  Start making a list – you may be quite surprised at how much your activities are monitored.
