just wondering how other people feel about supervisors texting employees from the workplace during there time off or for any other reason?have been doing much research on the issue.and i find that there are alot of privacy issues with this type of thing.does anyone else feel this is wrong?or maybe bad business practice?please share your stories.
Don't see where this is a problem unless you are sending in house information that should not leave the business. What I do have a problem with is theft of time. It is a proven fact that employees are stealing employers time by texting, using computers and phones at work to do personal stuff. This is theft of services. There is nothing I hate worse than to go into a business and have to wait while the person who is supposed to be waiting on me or other customers while they are wasting their bosses time AND mine on the phone or computer. I was in a business the other day and the lady couldn't wait on me for sending messages on her phone. Then went up the street and the clerk was reading gossip news on the computer and I had to wait until she finished. This is the same as stealing from a store. They were stealing time from the business! Sorry but this is wrong and i don't care who you are. If you are doing this, you are a thief.
