star this property answer text <p>If an employer required or encouraged implantation of microchips among its employees, it would raise several legal issues. While I am not aware of any cases being brought to test the legal position, it seems unlikely that such an invasive approach to security or monitoring would be found to be justifiable. So, it is likely to be difficult for an employer to show that such a practice would be consistent with the requirements of data protection legislation, health and safety requirements, and other legal obligations to employees.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In order to improve the customer experience, the Post Office provides branch services in a number of different ways, including over the counter, through ATMs, lottery and bill payment terminals, Self Service Kiosks, mail acceptance points, customer referrals and many more. It would therefore be impossible to capture all transactions.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Post Office gathers information through a regular independent monitoring process which shows that weekly customer visits across the Post Office network are around 16 million a week. Five years ago, the Post Office estimated that the weekly visits were around 17 million. The small decline is in line with general shopping patterns with more business being conducted on-line and via other channels.</p><p> </p> more like this
