A Carnduff business has been fined 21-hundred dollars after a worker discovered a hidden video camera near a toilet in a staff washroom.
On December 20, 2014, OHS conducted a complaint-based inspection after a worker discovered a hidden video camera within close proximity to the toilet in the staff washroom.
SE Ventures, operating as ITComputers, of Carnduff, was charged with failure to ensure employees are not exposed to harassment in a place of business.
The Saskatchewan Employment Act protects workers from bullying and harassment in the workplace.
The company pleaded guilty to the violation and was fined in Estevan Provincial Court on April 18.
In March of 2015, a computer store owner pleaded guilty to seven counts of voyeurism in connection with a camera hidden in the washroom of his Carnduff computer store and received a nine-month conditional sentence.
The 52-year old man had told court he had been filming female employees using the washroom for about four or five years.
