In August 2017, Wisconsin technology company, 3 Square Market, may have been the first U.S. company to offer employees the ability to have radio frequency identification device (“RFID”) chips implanted under their skin. The chips, the size of a grain of rice, are injected between the employee’s thumb and index finger. After that, employees can swipe their hands over chip readers to get into the office building, purchase food in the cafeteria and potentially log onto computer and other systems. For now, the chips are voluntary, and numerous employees have signed up to have them implanted.
