Just a reminder that you can still be micromanaged while working from home: A single mom in Texas went on TikTok to complain about how her company SPIES on everyone through their webcams.
It’s a place that does customer service for the financial tech company Klarna. And her computer recently got locked remotely when she stepped away to get a snack.
She was still on camera, but in the background in her kitchen. When she got back to her computer, her screen was locked. And there was a message telling her to contact her supervisor, because they noticed she wasn’t at her desk.
She explained in a video that she’s not allowed to turn her webcam off, and called them out for it. Then her company saw the posts and FIRED her.
Someone at corporate apparently put a hold on that, and said she was only suspended. But they DID eventually fire her after she more or less trashed the company in multiple videos.
