It's likely not an issue you've encountered but it's good to know for the future.

A Wisconsin company made headlines earlier this summer when they were allowing employees to voluntarily get implanted with an RFID microchip which would allow employees to forego ID badges, key fobs, etc in order to enter certain areas.

In North Dakota, a company could offer the same voluntarily offer if they wanted to. But as we continue into the future, an employee at some point may want to require employees to be implanted with an RFID microchip.

You can take comfort in knowing that a law prohibiting that was passed in 2007.

A person may not require that an individual have inserted into that individual's body a microchip containing a radio frequency identification device. A violation of this section is a class A misdemeanor.

A Class A Misdemeanor in North Dakota carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison and/or a maximum $3,000 fine.

If your boss requires you to get a microchip, get him/her locked up. This information may be meaningless today. But maybe not so much in the future.
