Reports of humiliating video clips of school teachers being posted on the internet have prompted employers to add “cyber-bullying” to their list of prohibited activities. Mobile phones with built in digital cameras are now in common use at work and the popularity of websites like YouTube makes it very easy to distribute material that may embarrass or distress. Alan Johnson has called for website providers to police their sites better to ensure that material of this nature is not posted. Employers are more likely to want to concentrate on preventative action, which could include guidance on the use of camera phones in the office and a reminder that any posting on an external website can be traced back to its source, even if this is done outside the office. Now may be a good time to review email and harassment policies to make sure they address these issues.
