Two-thirds of full-time workers have smartphones
Workers around the country are finding that work doesn't end after they leave the office.
With the increasing number of tasks that can be completed on a smartphone workers are able to stay connected to colleagues after hours. The result means people are working more but companies are not paying more for the extra work. A Chicago police officer recently sued the city for back pay after he says he worked overtime off the clock on a city issued Blackberry.
So what does this mean for workers? Paul Spiegelman with Beryl Companies says being able to stay connected is not a bad thing, but it means workers and employers need to be clear about boundaries.
Two-thirds of full-time workers now have smartphone, that is up from 40% last year. This means the traditional 8-hour workday could soon be a thing of the past.
