Consumer Reports

More employer surveillance | (UPI) -- More than three-quarters of major companies record and review employee communications and on-the-job activities, according to an American Management Association survey. That figure has doubled since 1997, USA Today reports.

"Companies are looking for more efficiency, and they want to keep track of who's producing," says Richard Soloway, chief executive officer of Napco Security Systems, a manufacturer of security products in Amityville, N.Y.

Employers also are hiring investigators to catch worker abuses.

"A shift company brought us in, and we got a video of guys drinking beer on the job," says Niall Cronnolly, president of Eagle Investigative Services in Atlanta, a firm that provides investigators posing as employees.
