GAO: Big Companies All Watch Workers’ Online Activity

Jan 01, 20031 min

The U.S. General Accounting Office interviewed 14 of the nation’s largest 1,000 companies and found that all of them, 14 out of 14, monitored their employees’ use of e-mail, the Internet and computer files. The GAO conducted the survey after some House members wondered about the federal government getting new authority to monitor electronic communications and Internet activities under the USA Patriot Act of 2001.
