A situation has arisen where staff members have been taken to task by their manager for comments and conversations made in general office chit chat that have not always been derogatory or even about work related items. A staff member passing the managers door became aware that the manager was listening to such a conversation recorded on her mobile phone. It had been noted that the manager had a habit of leaving her mobile lying around the office and staff had even been concerned about its security.

Initial thoughts about the matter rotated around the idea of throwing the mobile into a bucket of water and the manager through the window however sense prevailed after people has calmed down. Thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated. As you will gather staff relations are a bit raw just now!
