A British worker claims his superiors kept track of everything he and his co-workers saw on their computer screens — even hours later.

Electronic monitoring of employees in home offices has grown, according to a survey in the UK – as the government has been urged to tighten rules and ban the use of webcams.

When the first lockdown began in England, in 2020, engineer Chris (not his real name to protect his identity) sent most of his team home.

In order for them to continue with their high-tech operations, it was a matter of connecting laptops and PCs to the machines in the office, which were much more powerful.

At the time, says Chris, “we don’t care.” Until one day he visited the office and saw each of his colleagues’ screens displayed there while they worked from home.
