violation of privacy rights

Consumers and employees alike remain extremely concerned about electronic visit verification. Most of these systems violate Constitutional rights to privacy. There exists a severe nationwide home care worker shortage. It is almost impossible to find consistent care in many areas of the country. Electronic visit verification has already pushed many employees out of the home care industry, as they are able to find better paying jobs that don’t require them to sacrifice their privacy rights.
