I have a co-worker, this one is the wonderful sort that shirks about, can't do more than one task at a time, and decided to report every wrong move by anyone else in the cubicle farm.
The worst part is, they got ahold of two work cameras normally used for teleconferencing. And they loaded up software to monitor everything that goes on in the 'farm', both cameras aimed just so as to see people coming in and out of the 'farm'.
I know this because every time I approach the coworker to talk about work they are monitoring the cameras. Everytime they come into work they check the last 'crop' of video's to see what happened while they were gone. This coworker is also quite eccentric in their behavior due to personality difficulties.
There are several reasons this is annoying, any one of which I would overlook the behavior:
I don't know where the video is going, I don't know if I'm going to end up on youtube or something like that.
They use this as a form of control.
It feels like they are like a stool pigeon waiting to report anything that goes on.
Since I have to work with this coworker, and they are already spending up to what I'd estimate to be one to two hours a day checking the camera, they are not getting work done, which is bad for me because my projects are dependent on this person.
I talked to my boss about it and they said they would do something about it, it's been a few months and the cameras remain. The other problem is I also keep telling my boss that the lack of work from this coworker is unacceptable, but does not believe me because they have a longer history together.
What are my options now to make this stop?
