Are Employers Breaking the Law?
Both employees who had experience with GPS and employees who didn't expressed concerns about being tracked after hours (46% and 66% respectively).
But what's more alarming is that of employees who had been tracked using GPS, one in 10 responded that they were being tracked 24 hours a day — a big legal no-no in all 50 states. Another 30% said they weren't sure exactly when tracking stopped for the day.
45% of employees who had been tracked with GPS either believed that they were being tracked 24/7 or simply weren't sure. One in five employees said that the tracking was switched on without warning.
While it's unclear whether this is perception or reality, the legal ramifications are clear.
