Technology enabling facial, fingerprint and iris scans offers employers an efficient and accurate means to secure their workplaces, monitor and record their employees’ time and attendance.
Yet there are serious privacy concerns when it comes to biometric technology.

There are also broader privacy considerations. Privacy is an important human right that is fundamental to a person’s autonomy and dignity.
