CHARLOTTE, N.C. — New numbers show almost every single employer is spying on employees.

From keeping an eye on your internet usage to tracking your car, NBC Charlotte found out how they're doing it and if it's legal.

"It's getting to a point people are realizing they don’t have much privacy in the workplace," said Kevin Murray.

In fact, Omarosa Manigault reportedly recorded her own firing in the Situation Room at the White House.

You could be under surveillance at work and not know it.

"Most companies have some sort of surveillance on employees," Murray said.

A recent study showed 94 percent of organizations currently monitor workers in some way.

"Monitor internet usage, app usage, emails -- record what’s on the computer screen, maybe video surveillance," said Murray. "GPS tracking if people are using vehicles, even location tracking using card key badges."

Watching what you do on the internet is probably not a big surprise.

"Generally speaking, you don’t even know it's going on in the background, software monitors everything on desktop or laptop," Murray said.

But what about tracking the GPS in your company car? Or using your work key fob to track your every move?

"There are systems, you carry your badge, say you walk around a building, a large campus. There are systems where you can have that happen," said Murray.

And get this: Outside of Connecticut or Delaware, the law says your employers don’t have to tell you they’re spying on you.

"Other than that, if using employers equipment, there's no obligation to tell you," Murray said.

NBC Charlotte checked with a leading labor attorney. He told us most workplace surveillance is companies just trying to protect themselves.

"Typically, it's defensive in nature, trying to protect proprietary info, protect themselves from liability," said Mason Alexander.

The other side of this is companies trying to protect their employees' information. They have your address, social security number, and other important data. Plus, they've had to step up security lately to protect against hackers.
