    Ontario requires employers of a certain size (>= 25, IIRC) to have a written policy on remote employee tracking. This has been a great bit of transparency, and has helped ward employers against actually tracking remote workers. I hope the rest of the country follows suit.

    Something that may also end up putting pressure on these paranoid tin-pot dictators, too, is asking during job interviews whether the company monitors keystrokes, and, if they do, why they don’t trust their employees to be professionals.

      Monitoring keystrokes seems like it’s too insecure. Is IT seeing passwords and sensitive work data all day? I mean, even more than normal. That’s a better way to get sued.

      That second part seems like a great way to ensure you don’t get the job. It’s basically equivalent to saying “you guys don’t drug test, right?”

        If they monitor, sure. And that would ultimately be the point, because you don’t want the job in that case anyway.

        If everyone’s asking, they won’t be able to hire anyone, putting pressure on them to change their policies if they ever want to hire anyone.
