Cisco Sytems Inc., known for networking solutions and equipment has released its first network mobile smartphone and with the new phone came a slew of functions that have become highly controversial. The new model is the P-N15, a small grey smartphone with touchscreen and even an Mp3 player was at first embraced by employees for the sleek, attractive look. Not to mention companies who are using the new smartphone system no longer need to fuss with the old, button clad corded phones being on their desks.
However things took a turn for the worse when problems with the GPS functions arose. The phone comes with an optional GPS system that is supposed to engage when the user clocks into work with their phone. The issue comes that there is apparently an error with the GPS where it does not always disengage once a user clocks out. There were several reports of superiors being aware of their employees activities from prior nights and other off the clock activities.
Darleen Papist, an employee at a cold call center has filed a suit against her male employer who allegedly asked her about her pap smear having known she went to a gynecologist’s office over the weekend. Jeff Foster, a construction contractor walked onto a job site being asked he received a lap dance, with his boss having known he visited a strip club the night before. Jeff is also filing a suit against his employer as well as Cisco. Cisco has vowed to get to the bottom of the error and issue a recall, but who knows how many employers are taking advantage of the malfunction. For now Cisco is advising users to leave their phones at the office.
