Plant’s Posting of Employee Photos at Workstations ≠ Privacy Violation

A brewery’s new plant optimization scheme involved posting pictures of employees next to their workstations. Employees in the Montreal plant were concerned that having their pictures posted would identify them as being responsible for weak performance of a workstation that may actually have been caused by poor machinery.
