Co-worker's daughter called in sick to her manager and he/she broadcast the call over company's speaker system. Assume reason was to humiliate her. She's worked for the company for over ten years. Can an employer broadcast a private call without your permission?

  1. No... That is an invasion of privacy. Send me an email, and I can help her.


  2. No, that's terrible! She may have other legal claims, too, in addition to privacy concerns.
