A British Columbia worker got into hot water for spying on a coworker in a washroom, but it was her dishonesty about the incident that really flushed her employment down the toilet.

Rossdown Natural Foods is a poultry processing and retail business in Abbotsford, B.C. On June 12, 2019, a Rossdown employee reported to the HR department that another employee, Jiwanjot Sobat, had invaded her privacy in the employee washroom.

The employee was in the washroom during her lunch break due to “stomach issues.” At one point, she looked up and saw Sobat looking down on her from the next stall, recording a video with her cellphone.
