+ - Ask Slashdot: When Does Time Tracking Go Too Far?

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Hello, fellow Slashdotters. I ask this question anonymously to avoid complete and utter embarrassment that I have not already suffered as a result.

I work in a call center, full time, for a large mail order pharmacy. Recently, as part of their campaign to better track time spent both at and away from our desks, they have started tracking bathroom breaks. They use a Cisco phone system, and there is now a clock out option that says "Bathroom"

My question, Slashdot, is whether or not this is in any way acceptable in a large corporate environment (Around 800 people work at this same pharmacy) and is it even legal? How invasive would this really be considered, and beyond privacy concerns, how are they going to deal with the humiliation that their employees feel as a result of this?

Has this happened to anyway, or is it happening to any of you?"
