Did Intermex Get Creepy with Employee GPS Surveillance?

business_ethics_highlights_2If the allegations are true, this is really awful. People who get their jollies abusing managerial authority shouldn’t be in positions of managerial authority. >>>

Worker fired for disabling GPS app that tracked her 24 hours a day

A Central California woman claims she was fired after uninstalling an app that her employer required her to run constantly on her company issued iPhone—an app that tracked her every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“After researching the app and speaking with a trainer from Xora, Plaintiff and her co-workers asked whether Intermex would be monitoring their movements while off duty. Stubits admitted that employees would be monitored while off duty and bragged that he knew how fast she was driving at specific moments ever since she installed the app on her phone. . . . She likened the app to a prisoner’s ankle bracelet and informed Stubits that his actions were illegal. Stubits replied that she should tolerate the illegal intrusion”

    Given the serious nature of these allegations, it makes me wonder why Intermex has not been quick to respond. It seems as though they are just watching their reputation become quickly tarnished.
