The Listening Device In The Board Room
It is not unusual for disgruntled employees to attempt to take revenge on their previous employers but we were a little surprised to find a current employee already planning his revenge before he was dismissed. A regular client of ours asked us if we could shed any light on how his staff seemed to be aware there was going to be a safety inspection prior to it happening. We spoke to a few employees and found that one particular employee appeared to be ‘in-the-know’ but we still weren’t aware of how he had obtained the information. We sent our team to sweep some of the communal areas and offices and found a hidden listening device planted inside the board room. We were able to trace the owner of the SIM card and confirm that the employee in question had bought the SIM card, when questioned he explained that he thought the company were planning to let him go so he had planted it to try and find dirt he could use against them.
