Gps tracking helps employers catch cheating employees

Gps Tracking

GPS tracking devices that have been installed in government issued cars are helping to catch employees shopping, working out at the gym or doing other personal business while on the clock.

The use of GPS tracking has led to firings, stoking complaints from employees and unions that the devices are intrusive however employees know they are being watched and are no longer using the official cars for personal business.

An example of this technology been used is in Indiana where six employees of the Fort Wayne-Allen County Health Department lost their jobs last year after an administrator bought three Global Positioning Satellite devices out of her own pocket and switched them in and out of 12 department vehicles to nail health inspectors running personal errands on the job. Employees were caught going to stores, gyms, restaurants, churches and their homes.
