It sounds like the stuff of eschatological literature, but the idea of companies forcibly implanting their employees with microchips is making waves in Britain  although the government says it doubts the practice would be legal .

In recent years, companies marketing microchip implants have touted them as a convenient shortcut to many routine tasks. Employing the same technology used in contact less credit cards, the tiny device is generally implanted in a workers hand and can be used for such things as opening doors or turning on devices .

But groups in Britain ranging from the Confederation of Business Industry to the Trades Union Congress (TUC) have spoken out against the prospect of companies forcing implants on employees, a step that could facilitate constant monitoring .

TUC secretary-general Francis OGrady said in a statement this week new technologies should not be allowed to compromise a workers right to privacy. Employers should negotiate with their workforce about monitoring policies, he said .

Unions can negotiate agreements that safeguard workers privacy while still making sure the job gets done, OGrady said. But the law needs to be strengthened too, so that workers are better protected against excessive and intrusive surveillance .
