(Bloomberg News) -- Myrna Arias knew that her professional life was monitored by her boss. As part of her sales job at Intermex, a wire transfer service, she had to install an app called Xora that uses GPS to keep tabs on her whereabouts as she drove around California's Central Valley. 

The tracking appears to have continued even when Arias was off the clock. A recently filed lawsuit alleges that her manager "admitted that employees would be monitored while off duty." Arias claims her decision to uninstall the app resulted in her firing, and her wrongful-termination lawsuit seeks more than $500,000 in damages for lost wages and breach of privacy. Intermex declined to comment.
