It’s just a fact of working life: Your employer is watching you. But are you aware of the extent to which it’s happening?Let’s just say it’s pretty extensive. For some details on this, Liz and Rico chat today with Sarah Krouse. She’s a Telecom reporter for the Wall Street Journal who recently wrote a piece with the self-explanatory title, “The New Ways Your Boss Is Spying on You.” And after Sarah’s interview, Liz presents a couple company surveillance scenarios to Rico and asks him to guess if they were deemed unlawful or not in a suit.Then, we’ll hear from listener Jess who’s lamenting a workless workplace--a situation that’s not as carefree as it seems. And later, Liz and Rico chat with listener Natalie, who’s dealing with some “annoying email practices” from her colleague.As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
