Today I opened a social network and saw that one of my coworkers, let's call him Bob, posted a piece of source code of one of our projects.
The quick video is blurry, so it's hard to actually read it, but not impossible. IANAL but I'm pretty sure that this is illegal.
There is no way that anyone else in my company will see it since no one has that social network but for me.
As I see it I have 3 options:
- Act as if I did not see it
- Talk to him in private and make him realize how potentially bad this could end up being, for him and the company.
- Report this to my boss.
This is the first work experience for Bob and he has been working with us for less than 3 months.
My question is: How should I behave in this situation?
I really don't want to escalate this, but if something bad happens because of that post, and my boss finds out I knew about it, I think I would be in legal danger.
