California Bans Mandatory Subdermal RFID TaggingS

Paranoid California readers, you can now relax thanks to Senate Bill 362. No longer can employers require you and your coworkers to have RFID chips embedded in your skin. If they are caught doing so the State of California will slap them with an initial $10,000 fine, followed by a subsequent $1,000 fine for each day the subdermal chip stays implanted. Although you'd have to know about the chip to report them, right? And if your company is the type to implant RFID chips in their employees, wouldn't it be feasible for them to secretly implant them? Oh great, new things to worry about. [Ars Technica]
