Employer can’t use finger scan system to clock employees

An Ontario court has upheld an arbitrator’s decision that an employer can’t use a finger scan system to check employees in and out of the workplace.

IKO Industries Ltd. appealed the arbitrator’s ruling, alleging the arbitrator did not have jurisdiction to hear the grievance and that the decision was patently unreasonable.
