Company had to pay nearly $600K to an employee. Anyone think it is getting out of hand?
"..Butcher repeatedly informed company officials that submitting to biometric hand scanning violated his sincerely held religious beliefs as an Evangelical Christian. He also wrote a letter to company officials explaining his beliefs about the relationship between hand-scanning technology and the "Mark of the Beast" and the Antichrist discussed in the New Testament's Book of Revelation, and requesting an exemption from the hand scanning based on his religious beliefs."

This seems fair, considering how easily the company could have accommodated the employee.

diamente said: Anyone think it is getting out of hand? Yes, I think the use of biometrics is absolutely getting out of hand, and it's clearly still in its very early infancy. I'm an athiest, but I believe strongly that any use of biometric data for identification purposes can only lead to negative outcomes.

It's too bad you have to be part of a cult to have an excuse or get legal compensation for refusing to submit to biometric id.
