It is clear that GPS tracking on employee is generally acceptable during working hours at the work place or when the employee is using employer-owned assets – provided that there is a legitimate business purpose to do so and that the monitoring is conducted only during working hours. Employers should follow the best practices to lower legal risk. A successful implementation of employee GPS tracking requires all parties should be reasonable. Employers ought to understand from the employees’ perspectives, vice versa – and sincerely accommodate each party’s interest and concerns. Wise employers understand that the reception of the employees on the policy is important. In this regard, employers should treat employees more inclusively and show them that with the increased profitability, it can also make their lives better, and a wise employer would ensure all employees get to enjoy the fruits of the labor – perhaps bonuses as incentives for higher productivity.
