The article discusses the use of new technology so employers can monitor the move of their employees in the U.S., such as the electronic mail (e-mail) system. Most employers provide e-mail connection to their employees, so employers have the authority to check the transactions done by employees by putting tiny applications to the employees' equipment before deployed for use. A monitoring policy should be developed by employers and employees should be aware of that policy.
