Heard recently… An employer requiring middle management to monitor specific parts of an employees work and in the event it was not completed satisfactorily required to issue a “red card”. An actual red card! And what if these red cards were given or left in a place that made the issuing of them public to other employees? And what if we are talking processional employees here? And what if it is not part of some misguided sense of humor?
Seems that middle management is being placed in an untenable position, potentially breaching individuals privacy and possibly opening up the employer to claims of bullying and other poor work place practices.
