Norwegian alarm system monitors length of office lavatory visits!!!

Call centre workers in Norway are protesting against a hi-tech surveillance system that triggers an alarm if they spend more than eight minutes per day in the lavatory.

Managers are alerted by flashing lights if an employee is away from their desk for a loo break or other "personal activities" beyond the allotted time.

But unions and workplace inspectors have branded the practice at insurance company DNB as "highly intrusive" and a potential breach of their human rights.

 Norway's privacy regulator called Datatilsynet has now written to DNB telling them the monitoring system is "a major violation of privacy". Full story...
