John Halpin, a carpenter supervisor for the NYC school system, was fired for falsifying time records. His manager had been tracking Halpin's location on Halpin's GPS phone (provided by the school system) for five months, and noticed multiple discrepancies.

She issued a decision saying the Department of Education was under no obligation "to notify its employees of all the methods it may possibly use to uncover their misconduct."
