RFID tagging of humans terminated

GOVERNOR Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill that bars California employers from making radio frequency identification (RFID) implants mandatory for employees. The bill by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, will go into effect Jan. 1. “It’s the ultimate invasion of privacy,” Simitian told the San Jose Mercury News. “They should find other ways to keep track of employees.” The chips, created by Delray Beach, Fla.-based VeriChip Corp., gained national attention in October 2004 when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Radio Frequency ID (RFID) implants. The technology allows persons implanted with the devices to be identified and tracked by using broadcast radio identification. While Wisconsin and North Dakota have passed similar laws, the technology industry has refused to support the bill, SB 262, contending it was unnecessary, the newspaper reported.
