The firm’s Caleena Svatek contributed an article for Texas Lawyer on the guidelines businesses should follow in electronically tracking employees. She notes that businesses are increasingly using Global Positioning Systems to track their employees, but this practice must be supported by a legitimate business rationale and acknowledged policy. Such policies must explain the circumstances when the tracking will take place, notice of the employer’s right to track the employee when using company-owned property, the GPS tracking capabilities, and that employees have no reasonable expectation of privacy when using company-owned property.
