A boss has been accused of installing cameras in restrooms to monitor breaks.
A tech company in southeastern China has denied installing CCTV in bathrooms to monitor phone use and smoking during bathroom breaks. Sun report.
However, three photos of an employee hiding in a bathroom cubicle during a break have leaked online, reports Red Star News.
The three men were filmed sitting on the toilet, smoking and using mobile phones.
The company reportedly used the image to warn other employees that they were violating company policy, according to leaked internal files.
But the photo raised serious privacy concerns, with many saying it was another example of “Big Brother” surveillance in China.
“Companies should be punished for abusing surveillance cameras,” said one person.
“They treat people like animals and lack all respect and humanity,” wrote one.
A third called the move a “dystopian nightmare.”
The company allegedly fired two men who were caught on camera, and another lost his monthly bonus and received a slapped warning.
The company said the employee “crossed the line” and deserved “serious penalties”.
The staff told Red Star News:
