Title: [6WashJLTech&Arts143] Location Surveillance by GPS: Balancing an Employer’s Business Interest with Employee Privacy
Author: Rosenberg, Kendra; Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts
Abstract: Employers are increasingly using GPS tracking devices as business tools to monitor employee movements. Recent judicial decisions have found an employer’s interest in using location surveillance on employer-owned property generally trumps an employee’s privacy interests. However, employers deciding to use GPS should be aware of the potential limitations on tracking an employee based on state constitutional, statutory, and common law rights to privacy. This Article focuses on the permissible scope of an employer’s use of GPS to track employees in the workplace and provides practice pointers to employers seeking to use GPS technology in the workplace.
