Worker fired for disabling GPS app that ‘tracked her 24 hours a day’

Myrna Arias, of California, alleges she was fired from money transfer service company, Intermex, last May after she uninstalled job management app, Xora, from her company smart phone.

A California woman claims she was fired after disabling an app with a GPS function that was required to run on her company iPhone and tracked her 24 hours a day.

Myrna Arias was working for money transfer service company, Intermex, last year when she claims her boss, John Stubits, ‘bragged that he knew how fast she was driving’ at certain times after she had installed the app, Xora, according to the lawsuit.

She then objected to being monitored during non-work hours claiming it was an invasion of her privacy and ‘likened the app to a prisoner’s ankle bracelet’.

Arias uninstalled the app from her company issued phone in April 2014 before she was fired from her $7,250 a month job as a sales executive on May 5, 2014.
