ARE things getting a little weird where
- At work, are you in contact with
secret information that the company that you
work for wants to keep hidden from the
authorities? - The Health and Safety
Executive or perhaps the Environment Agency?
- Have you found out things that the
company would like to keep secret from the
public? - Were they selling tear-gas to the
South African Government during the Apartheid
- Have you found that all copies of
your training records have gone missing and
without any explanation? Were they kept in
two secure filing cabinets in two separate
buildings? (More than coincidence?)
- Are you being victimised?
- Have reports on safety issues gone
- When you saw your boss last, did he
act strangely? When you saw him in the
supermarket, did he say 'I wouldn't buy food
if I were you, it's too expensive.'
- Does your company need to achieve
some goal in the near future and the
information that you have could prejudice
their chances of getting it if the
appropriate authority found out? Would you
tell them? If the company acted 'poorly'
towards you, should you tell them anyway?
- Do you know that your boss is up to
something? - Perhaps something that the
Inland Revenue should know about?
- Has your employer acted incompetently
with regard to anything and you think that
they would wish to'change reality' in order
to make everything look all right?
huh? Do you think that they may try to get rid of you and
shut you up, that what they would gain by doing so would
be worth more than playing it honestly?

sounds weird, could this happen as well?
- Malicious telephone calls (one of
which is documented by the company and used
in evidence against it).
- The Personnel Manager
telephoning and informing you that he
will make sure that you never work
- More malicious
- An hour long bullying meeting
(that you record covertly) where the managers make threats
(that you get on tape).
- Mail being redirected deliberately by
someone in the Industrial Tribunal.
- From correspondence between
yourself and the person in charge of the
tribunal, it appears to be something
that is well known about.
- Is this service
extended to other comapnies on request
or is it generally available?
- A Senior manager (who was in on the
bullying session) dies shortly after hearing
the transcripts of the tapes.
- An unsigned 'Proof Of Evidence' is
produced by the company - making all manner
of damning statements including statements
that the manager who was supposed to have
written it would have known to be false
at the time of writing.
- The company's
solicitors admit that there is no
- All of the company evidence
swings around to accommodate this new
- Later analysis shows
that it could not have been
written as claimed.
- One manager admits that he
changed evidence before the computer
consultants were able to make an image of the
- This is later repudiated
by a surviving senior manager who
changes his story when it is pointed
out that a criminal act must have
been performed by the company if his
testimony was honest.
- The story is changed again
when the fraud squad is brought in
to investigate large quantity of
- A falsified computer report that the
consultant eventually admits (under oath)
was made up by the company - he just signed
- A senior union official
dies just days before he is due
to give damming evidence at the tribunal.

you think that it may be happening to you . . .
- Make copies of anything that you can
think of, that could benefit your case
(whatever you think that may turn out to be -
you don't know what they are going to make up
against you if they feel sufficiently
threatened by you).
- Carry a tape recorder around with you
- keep it in your top pocket so that you can
record meetings concerning your fate (it is
amazing to see the look on a senior manager's
face when a tape recorder tells everyone that
he just lied under oath - myself and another
journalist witnessed this happen once. That
manager doesn't work there anymore)
- Keep copies of important documents
such as tapes off-site so that the company
cannot fool the authorities into removing
them from you.
- Make notes of things that are said
and events that happen as they happen - keep a diary.
- Keep copies of computer file listings
- it is too easy for managers to plant files
and change date/time stamps. Computer forensic
software does not make a true image of a disk,
it only takes the digital information therefore
if something has been deleted, this will not
- Telephone tapping - try feeding
false, plausible but unique information into
the telephone lines and see where it pops up
again. I know of someone who thought that their
telephone was being tapped so she talked about a
ficticious demonstration - a very large number of
riot police manned a bewildered small town one
- Get someone else involved so that
they can see things that you cannot.
- Don't put blind trust in the
justice systems. On the whole, they do a
good job but some people view them from a
position of absolute power so keep
contemporanious notes so that they can be
called to order in the event that an injustice

convicted, a guilty one goes free. When a
company realises that they still employ the
