More companies are using technology to monitor employees, sparking privacy concerns
Sensors and microchips may signal a new era of a connected workforce, but some experts say these technologies also put employees' privacy at risk. For example, a recent patent submitted by tech giant Amazon describes an electronic wristband that could monitor employees' tasks. Three Square Market, a tech company based in Wisconsin, started an optional microchipping program for its employees in July 2017. UPS has sensors on its delivery trucks to track the opening and closing of doors, the engine of the vehicle, and whether a seat belt is buckled.
