According to a report in the Mail Online. Per the Mail, it has emerged that a number of America’s largest companies are reportedly “tracking employees. Everything from their prescriptions to search terms; and far beyond’. Companies like Wal-Mart favourite big time data companies like Castlight Health, which, collects user data on all things health related — so Wal-Mart in turn knows which employee may or may not fall ill with what and when, and, how it can plan in the future to guide their employees in the direction they’d like an employee to go.
For example, Castlight reportedly admitted to the Mail Online that companies like Wal-Mart routinely contact the company to dig into the personal and healthy lives of their employees — to determine which employee they can scapegoat into expensive prescriptions or surgeries.
