Shibu is the founder of Transcend - a small London-based firm that buys beauty products wholesale and re-sells them online.

For the last year and a half he has used Hubstaff software to track his workers' hours, keystrokes, mouse movements and websites visited.

"Employers have an implied legal duty to maintain their employees' trust and confidence, and need to be mindful of how employees might react to the mass roll-out of monitoring software," he says.

There's a good solution for this: quit the job. It's not worth it if there is no trust between the employer and his employees. Or does the boss also let employees monitor his computer as much as they want to?
