Can your boss track your every move?

Bob Moon Dec 6, 2010

Aren’t those GPS locators a wonderful invention? Lose your way, and you can quickly find yourself again.

But what if the boss uses a GPS device to keep track of your every move on the job? A worker for the New York State Labor Department ended up being fired after investigators tracked him by GPS, to show he was falsifying his time sheets. Now, the New York Civil Liberties Union is suing to have that action overturned. It argues use of the tracking device was intrusive and unconstitutional.
