Zoom etiquette

A Julius Bär banker lost his job after colleagues witnessed him masturbate on video during a town hall video call...

Several colleagues tried to warn him but he didnt pick up his mobile phone.

Re: Zoom etiquette

Sounds incredibly petty to fire him, the shame alone should be punishment enough. Allowance should be made for the fact that he is at home where lines have already become blurred.

Re: Zoom etiquette

I guess the real issue was not stopping after the others kindly asked to.

Yea ... tell me about it. Some days like today, you don’t even turn the camera on because you don’t feel like changing or brushing your hair. I noticed while spaced out in a meeting today that everyone was silent & I didn’t know why, turns out they were waiting for me to answer a question.

I was mortified ... but this poor bastard. Seems a bit wrong to fire him, but perhaps it is good so he can claim RAV now, I would have wanted to quit straight away if I were him.

I know bankers are often thought to behave like that, but presumably such behaviour falls below minimum standard requirement even in Switzerland.

I tell you - those softwares can start acting on their own sometimes... which is why I’m super paranoid.

Some years ago I had a laptop that had a little cover that you could slide to block the camera. I wonder why that little device is not common anymore

Don't know where you saw that.

I guess my sympathy stems from also being utterly fed up and demoralised after a year of this. Whatever gains in efficiency have now been overtaken by an abuse of the system and the fact that meetings span 14 hours a day in my case (07:30 to 22:00). The reason is its less efficient in the long term to align and move large organisations by phone.

Well as they say. If someone catches you and you stop, you're the one caught pulling yourself. If someone catches you and you continue, they're the pervert who kept watching...

I've blocked my time before 0900 and after 1700 to be request-only after my other half remarked, somewhat negatively, that I was working more now than a year ago.

It will be one year since I was in the office on Wednesday of next week....I can admit to half multi-tasked during a listen-only call to have a poo once in that time. I have also Skyped in December while walking from my apartment to the ski-lift

Re: Zoom etiquette

Here is a question, if I am hosting a Zoom meeting at 9am. I already start the meeting at 8am, camera is on, recording to cloud is disabled. I have waiting room setup but no one is there as it is too early.

Now if I walk around in front of the camera getting ready for the meeting, could some Chinese tech guy potentially have access to that feed/video of me walking around?

Re: Zoom etiquette

Poor banker was isolated by COViD restrictions in home office, no girlfriend, no nightclubs, no going out hence in desperation, he “discharged” his emotions on screen.

It doesn’t deserve firing though, he should have been provided some mental coaching sessions by his wrong acting boss.

Yes. It could be possible. It might not be a guy snd might not be a Chinese person too
