Videotaping by Employee in Workplace
Topic: Videotaping by Employee in Workplace
Posted: 24/May/2017 at 10:34
I work in a food processing facility. It is infested with rats. Despite employers knowing about it and using some pest controls, we employees have been told to use food and package it even though the smell of rat urine on the actual food is notable.
Is it illegal for we employees to videotape the rats, rat poo and food and make it public, provided we don't film any employees or employers (no humans)?
What does the law state concerning employees taking video footage inside the workplace?
Would I be protected from prosecution as it has been done "in the Public Interest"?
This is a very very well known company with food in all major supermarkets in Australia.
I have only been able to warn close family/ friends about purchasing the items of this company as I've been told I can get into serious trouble if I release the proof (videos/ photos) publicly.
Is this true?
I don't care if I lose my job but I need to know I can't be sued or prosecuted.

Report the matter, anonymously (if you are worried about repercussions) to the local authority health department. Include any photos and videos
