The American Civil Liberties Union is calling on the government to impose mandatory fingerprint screening for employees of security cameras installed at major companies that provide work at the nation’s largest companies.
The National Security Agency is the biggest employer of workers in the U.S., employing about 10 million people, according to a report released Monday by the American Civil Liberty Union.
That means at least a third of all the workers who work for companies that install the cameras are required to have their fingerprints taken.
The report says it’s a violation of the Fourth Amendment’s guarantee of privacy that companies that use such technology must require employees to give up their right to a speedy and public trial.
The ACLU said that’s a direct violation of a worker’s First Amendment right to privacy.
The company companies are supposed to review their policies and procedures annually.
The organization said the government should also enforce a similar rule for companies hiring security guards, but has not yet asked for such a proposal.
The ACLU report comes amid a broader debate over whether to tighten gun control laws.
A new study released Monday from the Center for American Progress found that Americans trust their government to enforce gun laws more than ever, with almost a third saying the government is doing so fairly, fairly fairly and fairly.
The study was funded by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.
It’s a trend that’s fueled concern about the effect that gun control could have on companies.
A report released earlier this month by the left-leaning think tank Demos found that more than one in three companies with 50 or more employees say they’d like to require workers to provide government-issued ID.
The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, is pushing for mandatory ID for workers, saying that the practice makes workers more vulnerable to criminal or terrorism threats.
The Civil Liberties Protection Alliance is also pushing for background checks for workers at security firms, and for companies to be required to provide fingerprinting records for all workers.
The two groups have also come under fire for arguing that requiring companies to fingerprint workers would violate employees’ privacy rights.
The groups argued in a letter to the Department of Labor that the requirement would make it impossible for workers to legally work.
A federal judge last week said the EEOC has authority to issue the order, but he also said that the EEO does not have authority to require companies to do so.
The EEOC said it will consider a request from the government and has said it’s working with the Justice Department to provide information on the issue.
The EEOC, the U, S. Treasury Department and the Justice and Labor Departments are expected to issue a joint memorandum soon outlining the policy and process for enforcing the requirement.
The EEO bill, which passed in Congress in March, was signed by President Barack Obama on Friday.
