New workplace surveillance technology tracking literally our blood, sweat and tears is upon us.

Should your boss track your tone of voice, movement around the office and facial expressions? Is workplace surveillance the reason for new electronic performance management methods and worker profiling for hires and fires? Is the new Data Protection Bill going to make things worse for us, the workers?
