Re: Patriot Act?

As a mgr, I got monthly reports of all my direct reports on every call they made from a company landline or cell phone.

Privacy is dead, has been for 20 years. The only place it exists is in your thoughts. For now, at least....

Are you happy with your rep in Washington, DC?

That's a little different, that's a company owned phone on company time.
This is my personal time and personal information, and a service I'm paying for to boot.

said by FFH:Sounds illegal even if it's company phones. I can understand looking at aggregate call data on calls made from company provided phones like numbers called, date, time, duration of the call, however actually listening in on the phone call definitely sounds illegal. If it's not, it should be.
