sykesix,

Businesses are using tracking sensors to monitor employees' every move.

As Big Data becomes a fixture of office life, companies are turning to tracking devices to gather real-time information on how teams of employees work and interact. Sensors, worn on lanyards or placed on office furniture, record how often staffers get up from their desks, consult other teams and hold meetings.

I can just imagine some creepy, Republican boss monitoring how much time workers spend in the bathroom.
