Walmart Being Sued For Installed Video Cameras In The Bathroom

Posted Dec 28, 2009

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.  (Public, NYSE:WMT) is being sued by seven former and current employees for having surveillance cameras in unisex bathrooms.  Employees and customers felt that the surveillance cameras in the bathrooms are a violation of privacy.

The surveillance cameras were installed by a couple employees in the loss-prevention department in order to monitor theft.  The cameras were installed in several Pennsylvania stores including the bathroom-dressing room and Tire and Lube center of the Walmart Supercenter in Easton.

Apparently Walmart has already fired the two employees that were responsible for installing the cameras.  Customers and employees were not notified about the cameras being installed.
