Big Brother employers have turned big time on serial sicknotes with the ultimate gadget. Not content with pissing employees off with a blacklist they have decided to create a climate of fear to add to the already firmly entrenched bullying culture you have in all workplaces.
Susan Anderson, director of HR policy at the CBI, said the technology could be "very useful".
"Research from the CBI and [insurance company] AXA shows that employers believe 12% of absence is not genuine, and that these sickies amount to 21 million lost days every year, at a cost of £1.6bn," she said.
However, she said that employers did not want to behave like Big Brother, and that the technology would be best used as part of a range of incentives and penalties.
Of course employers dont want to behave like Big Brother!!
If ever there were ways to encourage union membership?
