Can a manager broadcast your phoned-in sick call over its intercom system without your permission?

Asked over 2 years ago - Milwaukee, WI

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?
