Customs and Border Protection staff have been told that under its new “mandatory reporting” system, they are expected to report on their colleagues' behaviour both during and outside of work hours.

    Staff who commit to such a regime will need assurance that the employer will protect 'dobbers' against any recrimination by those who are dobbed.
    There will also have to be some thoughtful consideration given to what happens to persons who use these new requirements unfairly or maliciously. The initiative demands a high level of control. It's not one in which work colleagues will develop trust and reliance. One wonders what the long-term effects on the workplace (including quality of communication, sharing of info. etc) might be.
