There is a company called "The Network" out of Norcross Georgia which
handles employee reports of corporate abuses,etc for retailers like
Home Depot and others. A friend who works at a major retailer has had
to call the line and suspects that the service is monitoring calls
despite disclaimers and possibly handing over call detail records
listed as the phone number detail on the 800 phone number bill(800
numbers,billed to a customer usually identify phone numbers which have
called that number then those numbers can be cross-referenced against
employee numbers in the employee database). Anyone know about these
services? I suspect that when an employee calls the line the client
company requests to see verification that such a call was actually
made ,verifiable from a call detail listing from the 800 number bill.
Does anyone know if these companies make voiceprints or record without
consent? The friend made one call and was immediately called in by
management, clearly targeting them even though according to the
confidential service there is no way management could have known
whether they called or not.
Why would somebody report corporate abuse to
an outfit which might be working for the company also?
On the other hand, if the complaint describes
corruption related to the XYZ account or the
purchasing of the XYZ valve, and a government
agency subpoenas all details about XYZ, and
you are one of three people who had anything
to do with XYZ, it's easy to see how quickly
the company can figure out who reported.
Whistleblower protection is less about secrecy
and more about legal protections against
retaliatory action by the company.
