After George was fired, he sued the company and its practices. Unfortunately, his terms of employment dismissed the case to arbitration and he had to withdraw from it. Commenting on the situation, his lawyer said: “Without a doubt, this is illegal. It’s annoying that anyone can control my phone and my battery.”. It is known that employees at some stage of their work receive a so-called training document How to conduct an informed negative test. Contains examples of these measurements. Certainly, the company has not practiced such behavior from today. However, we should not think that after the official release of such information, nothing will change.
