Interesting True Stories
• Three employees were sentenced to 20 months jail for bugging their boss for a raise.
It happened in China. “No wonder,” you say. Hear me out. They really bugged him, as in electronic surveillance. They used a hidden camera to blackmail him. Now it makes sense.
• From a government investigation report...
"Employee hid a recording device in supervisor's office. In addition, without authorization, Employee made copies of supervisor's negative comments about Employee that Employee located by conducting an unauthorized search of the supervisor's office and briefcase. Employee provided the notes to lawyer in support of lawsuit against supervisor. Finally, Employee lied to investigators during the course of the administrative inquiry.”
This case came from the files of the FBI. Why?
A. It was their employee.
• Management-labor eavesdropping works both ways...
In San Francisco, an International longshore and warehouse union local reported their employer, “conducted secret surveillance, eavesdropping and snooping and listening in on confidential communications between and among union representatives, shop stewards and members concerning ongoing contract negotiations, bargaining strategies and labor-management issues.”
• Even cops have their problems.
A former Nashville police officer/union organizer was indicted on federal charges in connection with the break-in and illegal surveillance of a Fraternal Order of Police youth camp. Investigators alleged the hidden cameras were placed at the camp in an effort to discredit the FOP by catching officers engaged in some type of misconduct.
