26 Dec Grab Accused of Tracking Drivers Even When Off the Clock
Singapore website The Straits Times recently learned that Southeast asian ride-hailing firm Grab had asked its rental fleet partners to install trackers in their cars for the purposes of generating reports.
The trackers collect various information such as speed, acceleration, braking, etc. It is automatically activated once the ignition is turned on. However, some observers say that it could be used to track drivers who take on jobs for Uber, despite signing exclusively with Grab.
Some lawyers have also noted that this could give rise to some privacy issues, and said that Grab will have to write such terms into their contracts with their drivers.
