WORKPLACE POLITICS – AREA MANAGER TRYING TO SABO RESTAURANT MANAGER

Any lawyer here? Need some advice, thank you! I work in a restraunt chain which has quite a few branches over Singapore.

There is a problem where an Area Manager in charge of the North side is intentionally finding mistakes of us workers in Central side through the monitoring of the CCTVs.

This is what I heard but that Area Manager dislikes my Restaurant Manager and is intentionally undermining his conduct by observing through our CCTVs, finding every small mistakes we employees made.

Thereafter sharing the CCTV footage around various other Managers and Area Managers through Whatsapp.

I was wondering if there can be anything to be done? Me and my fellow colleagues do not feel comfortable when working, especially when someone is intentionally finding mistakes we may or may not have made intentionally.

  1. Obligatory not a lawyer. If the North side area manager doesn’t have the clearance to view the Central side’s CCTV, or is breaking some company rule by distributing the CCTV footage to the other area manager and managers, then you might be able to do something about it.
    But if none of these behaviours violate company policy, or the other managers condone it, wherein the only unhappy people are you and your fellow colleagues, then you’re pretty much stuck.
    In a professional setting, mistakes are still mistakes, no matter the intent. Yes, it’s crappy of the higher ups to go out of their way to spy on workers and penalise them for everything done wrong, instead of using empathy, but at the end of the day a mistake is still the fault of whoever made it.
    Unless you’re saying yall did not make the mistake and the area manager is framing you by editing the footage or taking things out of context. Otherwise, there is no case
  2. Ask your Restaurant Manager to inform your Central Area Manager to do something about it then.
    They should be the ones solving problems that hinder the staff’s morale in working.
