Hiding devices in lights and ID badges, your boss can legally track you everywhere… but the bathroom.
One security company ‘Enlighted’ has installed sensors that collect data at more than 350 companies, including 15% of the Fortune 500.
They’re hidden in lights, ID badges, and elsewhere, tracking things such as conference room usage, employee whereabouts, and even how long someone goes without speaking to another co-worker.
-Legally speaking, U.S. businesses are within their rights to track employees. “Employers can do any kind of monitoring they want in the workplace that doesn’t involve the bathroom…as long as the data is kept anonymous…?” says Lewis Maltby, president of the National Workrights Institute.
A majority of U.S. workers the Pew Research Center surveyed last year said they’d tolerate surveillance and data collection in the name of safety.
