Chipping Away at Workplace Privacy: The Implantation of RFID Microchips and Erosion of Employee Privacy

Publication Title

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

These technologies and policies include the implantation of microchips in employees; bring your own device to work policies; and wearable technologies.

To protect their privacy rights, employees should use a collectivist approach to bargain with their employers for such rights.
