If that law really exists, it is ignored by all companies I know. I've
worked for a German company for seven years, and they monitored
*everything* they could (ok, they couldn't monitor much because the IT
guys were complete idiots). They even got *very* mad when I told them
about some Swiss laws which forbids certain kind of monitoring and they
had to stop doing that.
AFAIK there's no union for sw developers - and as long as that's the
case, the companies in Germany will ignore those laws.

Everyone can answer that question easily without looking at the
statistics dialog: it's the manager :)
