Can my employer make me put a tracking device on my personal vehicle that I drive from job to job, if I own it and pay all expenses on it?

I work as a maintenance man and work but in and out of state.

Under the employment laws of all states in this country, if the vehicle that you are driving is your own, your employer cannot legally require you to have a tracking device upon it as a condition of your employment. Such a requirement would be a violation of the labor laws under all states in this country.
