5. Busted by GPS



John Haplin worked for the NYC school system for 21 years. He was a carpenter supervisor who, <a href=”http://www.centernetworks.com/man-fired-thanks-to-gps-tracking“ target="_blank"> according to his managers , was falsifying time-records.

How did they know? They’d been tracking his whereabouts for five months, via the GPS system in his government-issued cell phone. They found that he’d repeatedly accepted payment for times when he was clearly not working. Haplin says it was unfair for his employer to track him without warning. Fair or not, he no longer has to worry about them tracking his location.

Moral of the Story

Disable the GPS tracker on your work phone.
