Working from home? Your boss is probably spying on you


When coronavirus spread around the world earlier this year, many offices shut their doors and sent staff to work from home.
And although this new professional landscape suits many, it also raised questions about worker privacy.
Several software services for remote working have seen their sales surge - they allow bosses to keep tabs on their staff.

Al Jazeera's Rory Challands reports from London, UK.

Michael Gove has told Sky News that people will be encouraged to work from home again as part of new measures to tackle a surge in cases of COVID-19.

It comes after the government encouraged people to return to their offices and workplaces just a few weeks ago.

The cabinet office minister reaffirmed the "reluctant" decision that pubs and restaurants will have to close at 10pm from Thursday and be table service only.

Mr Gove said he stood by the government's decision to encourage people to go out and dine over the summer and claims today's announcement is a proportionate response to rising case numbers.

Relatives of the victims killed by Brenton Tarrant in New Zealand's worst mass shooting have pleaded with the judge to make sure he is never freed.

The anger and grief in the courtroom was palpable as family members called the terrorist a "maggot", "a big fat loser" and a "pathetic human being".

"Your father was a garbageman and you became trash of society," Ahad Nabi, the son of one of the victims, said. "He is ashamed of your identity. You deserve to be buried in a landfill."
